World-renowned scientists are cooperating with our research activities as members of our scientific board, and have contributed to scientifically prove the effects of FPP® on the immune system as well as its mechanism of involvement in our antioxidative system. Our members come from very different fields, and many different countries. They communicate their research findings on FPP® in international academic conferences and at ORI scientific committee meetings.

We expect to expand successfully in the United States and South America.

  SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUPPORT – WORK WITH CHARITIES

Dedicated to helping people live better, healthier and more productive lives, the OSATO Group donates to various causes and activities. For example, we made donations to assist the victims of the 2011 earthquake and devastating tsunami in Tohoku, Japan.
Our president, Mr. Yuki Hayashi has donated money to the Marie Curie museum in Paris, France, to finance the electronic archiving of Marie Curie research documents, as well as an interactive touch screen display system that allows several users to consult the museum’s archives simultaneously.
We have been sponsored the charity bicycle race organized by the “Petits Cœurs” Association (the Léon-Bérard Children’s Cancer Center) in Lyon, France since 2009 and contributed to the Pénélope Association, an association helping women in great difficulty, based in Paris, France.
In 2009 we started our “fireflies conservation project” to protect the water and biodiversity of the small brook running on the West side of OSATO Laboratory Inc. in Gifu, Japan. We have  created an environment where fireflies can live: their presence is a clear and useful indicator of water pollution. We clean the brook once a month and conduct a water quality inspection once a year.
