We are proud to announce that ALBION has joined the "Akita E-ne! Option Hydropower 100%", a sustainable initiative that helps companies reduce their CO2 emissions by switching to electric power.
Supporting the Local Community Through In-House Winemaking
In 2010, we established a research institute and pilot farm at the foot of the Shirakami Mountains, a World Natural Heritage site in Fujisato Town, Akita Prefecture. Two years later, we began purchasing Wild Sauvignon (a hybrid of Wild grape and Cabernet Sauvignon) from Fujisato Town in order to study potential skincare benefits.
ALBION’s Research on Job’s Tears Seed Extract
For many years, ALBION has worked with the National Institutes of Biomedical Innovation, Health and Nutrition to research the physiological activity of Kita No Hato, a rare variety of Job’s tears. Recently, we conducted a new study and presented our exciting findings to the Chemical Society of Japan.
