Product Development

We develop a wide range of food and drinks to offer customers products that will contribute to realizing a rich dietary culture. We also develop various health foods and drinks including “food for specified health use” (FOSHU) and “food with function claims” utilizing various functional ingredients identified through new ingredient research.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages

Asahi Beer scientifically elucidates the art of brewing beer from diverse perspectives: technologies for manufacturing “good” tasting beer; technologies to maintain the just-made fresh flavor; analysis of brewing yeast genes that impact fermentation, etc. to further improve product quality and develop innovative products. The products we develop range from beer and related products to ready-to-drink (RTD) alcoholic beverages, wine and non-alcohol beverages.

Non-alcohol Beverages

We are also active in the field of non-alcoholic beverages including carbonated drinks, lactic drinks, lactic acid drinks, coffee, tea, fruit and vegetable juice. We seek new raw materials and examine manufacturing technologies to develop new products that meet customer tastes and trends.
