About Us


J-Oil Mills, Inc. was established in 2004 from the merger of three processed oil manufacturers:Honen Corporation, Ajinomoto Oil Mills Co., Inc., and Yoshihara Oil Mill, Ltd. Each company has a long history, dating as far back as the 1820s, the Bunsei era. We have provided a variety of values to society through products and services by combining the know-how and strengths cultivated by each company over 190 years of history to create synergistic effects. Leveraging our technical capabilities and experience cultivated in Japan, we are moving forward one step at a time, looking at overseas expansion.

J-Oil Mills is currently one of the leading edible oil producers in Japan, and we are developing the overseas market with our proprietary product to realize our corporate philosophy. Our product line includes hundreds of offerings: oils and fats, processed oils and fats, foodstuffs (such as starches and soy sheets), and fine materials, including micronutrients such as vitamin K2, isoflavones, saponins, and vitamin E for use in nutritional supplements and functional foods.
