"Genmaicha" is a type of traditional Japanese flavored tea created by blending roasted rice and green tea. While it is a unique beverage enjoyed in everyday life in Japan, it is relatively unknown abroad. Aiming to create awareness of the value and charm of this traditional genmaicha among people worldwide, the company established the Genmaicha Research Institute to ensure its continuation for the next generation and beyond.

The company will share the appeal of genmaicha that can be considered a pioneering beverage for the U.N. SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), providing guidance on how to enjoy it, savor its flavor, and suggest pairing it with various foods through diverse approaches. Furthermore, it will propose standards, criteria, and definitions as global standards, and conduct promotional and communication activities both domestically and internationally.

Kyoto Grain System also has plans for trial tastings and special campaigns for its original genmaicha. It encourages consumers to explore the charm of genmaicha and support the efforts of the Genmaicha Research Institute to make them love genmaicha even more.

Kyoto Grain System is committed to contributing to "Planetary Health" through sustainable genmaicha production at the local, national, and global levels.
