UTSUMI

One company manages the entire process, from the bottles collection to the production.

Integrated manufacturing system

Our integrated manufacturing system allows Utsumi to perform all of the steps in the production process, from the bottles collection to the final product within one company. We introduced this system for the first time in Japan. Beginning with the flake production from the post cosumer bottles to manufacturing the final products, it is a method that ensure 100% traceability.

Our products conform to the guidelines set by FDA & EFSA.
