In 1941, KIMICA became the first company in Asia to successfully produce alginates on a commercial scale. In 1988, due to extensive sales growth, KIMICA further expanded their manufacturing plant, KIMICA Chile Ltda. Today, the KIMICA plants in Japan and Chile each produce the full spectrum of alginate products, which are sold throughout the world.
Continuous upgrading of our manufacturing technology helps assure that KIMICA Alginates remain the best in the world. Nowadays, with the worldwide concerns relating to health care, food safety, environmental issues, etc., the demand for Alginates, an extract from natural resources, is growing rapidly in the market place.
