In 1970, Takara Bio established, for the first time in the world, a technique for mass-producing Bunashimeji mushrooms and with its commercialization began the Company's business of mushrooms. We have since developed new high value-added mushrooms and have also established mass production techniques.
Currently, Takara Bio produces Honshimeji mushrooms (product name: "Daikoku Honshimeji") and Hatakeshimeji mushrooms (product name: Otsubu Tanbashimejii" through Mizuho Norin Co., Ltd (located in Kyotanba-cho, Kyoto Prefecture). Takara Bio holds the top share of the market in Japan for Honshimeji mushrooms, known for their good taste which rivals the smell of matsutake-"Matsutake for flavor, Shimeji for taste" as the saying goes. Daikoku Honshimeji mushroom received "Kyoto Brand Goods" designation from the Kyo-Branded Products Association in 2015, and has earned a solid reputation as a high value-added mushroom product.




Takara Bio schedules for the transfer of our group's mushroom business
to Yukiguni Maitake Co., Ltd as of March 1, 2019.
