Takii & Co., Ltd. was established in 1835, right in the middle of the Tenpo Famine that began in 1832. Ensuring a stable supply of superior seed products that produce varieties which are productive, flavorful and nutritious to sustain mankind has been our unchanging mission for 180 years.
Reaching a milestone as significant as our 180th anniversary has made Takii & Co., Ltd. even more steadfast in the pursuit of its mission: Contributing to society through the creation and stable supply of high quality, excellent seed varieties.
The earth, our planet of life, experiences catastrophic environmental events both natural and man-made. There is an increasingly serious desire among consumers for food safety. At Takii, we know breeding varieties resistant against diseases and tolerant to a range of environmental conditions while continuing to make investments in advanced technology, such as molecular marker technology, allow us to bring varieties to market that meet the demands of consumers around the world.
Takii has accumulated a remarkable range of breeding materials over 180 years. We breed varieties of excellence by utilizing this vast breeding material, however, even the best breeding material would be underutilized without the spirit, passion and skill of Takii’s staff of breeders and researchers. We believe a commitment of blending tradition and innovation is what allows us to meet the demands and develop the trust our customers have in us.
For 180 years, Takii has appreciated and enjoyed serving our customers. We don’t take lightly the trust and support you’ve shown us over these many years. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
