The Birth of CALPIS® is the Base of all of Our Company's Business Philosophies and Technologies
"I want to help people by creating something tasty and good for the human body," said Kaiun Mishima, the founder of our company, who was inspired by cultured milk he drank in Inner Mongolia in the early 1900s. He focused on its beneficial qualities to create a rich tasting healthy drink. CALPIS®, the first cultured milk drink in Japan, was developed in this way. This product is the foundation of our company.
*The marketing and distribution of beverage brands belonging to Calpis Co., Ltd. in Japan is conducted by the Calpis Sales Division at Asahi Soft Drinks Co., Ltd.
