History

We, Orihiro, were founded in Tomioka City, Gunma Prefecture, which is a major producer of konjac potatoes. Since then, we have focused on developing technologies and products with the theme of healthy living through food. Today, the Orihiro Group has been formed to develop the industry-leading machinery business for sterile filling and packaging systems, the health food business that contributes to a healthy and prosperous life, and the konjac material business that opens up new possibilities for konjac products.
