・As much as possible, satisfy your body with food.

・The motif on the product package is a letter written by a mother who is wishing for the wellbeing of her whole family who may live far away. Consumers will experience warmhearted feelings as well as tastiness and health.
・The opinions and requests of as many customers as possible have been reflected. As a result, the new products are healthier and tastier.・The two new items in the Calorie Light Series (four items for Apita and Piago) are filling, rich in flavor and low in calories. The other two items in the Colorful Vegetable Series are characterized by having domestic vegetables kneaded into the dough, as well as their color and chewy texture.
