In order to improve the quality of our products, our Kobayashi Factory acquired the GMP certified factory as the first factory in mineral water industry on 22nd April, 2013 from the Japan Health and Nutrition Food Association. Although the soft drink manufacturing in Ikoma Factory has been using the same manufacturing management method of GMP, since on 17th July, 2018, it received approval for cosmetics manufacturing・cosmetics manufacturing and sales, this time in order to unify the quality management system, both Kobayashi Factory and Ikoma Factory completed the external inspection by JQA (Japan Quality Assurance Organization) in March 2020, and acquired the international standard ISO9001 certification.

We will continue to raise awareness of product quality within the company, pursue customer satisfaction, and strive for sustainable growth and quality improvement.
