We are the premier developer, manufacturer and distributor of Okinawan coral calcium using coral sourced at the end of a long life cycle in local Okinawan waters. We tailor this ‘Ocean Mineral’ into an edible coral product. We celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2017 and thank our all of 57 staff for their support and belief in who we are and what we are passionate about doing.
Onshu Orange, Sato Farm, 20 ha, in Saga Prefecture, Japan
Colored by four distinct seasons and blessed with abundant seas and fertile land, Japan enjoys a rich food culture. Through the evolution of materials and technology over the last 200 years we feel humanity has lost something important, and as a result our individual life force has diminished. It is partly due to the lack of nutrition needed to keep us healthy, caused by the reduction of minerals in soil that is cultivated with a focus on efficiency. We now recognize how important ‘food’ and ‘water’ are to life.
Twenty years ago we first discovered the benefits of corals and developed filters for pure water and rice cultivated using coral. We worked closely with users, marine scientists, medical practitioners and specialists, who researched the unique properties and benefits of coral sands. Over the years this has created a knowledge base that enabled the creation of a select range of unique products that naturally and sustainably harness the properties of coral sands, to provide individuals with access to these life-enhancing minerals, and a natural balance to offset the impact of busy contemporary life.
Our Salon de Coral was formed to listen to the voice of users, as well as provide a forum for information about our passion, and to share the importance of minerals through workshops with specialists throughout Japan. We believe it is our mission and responsibility to society and communities to contribute to the quality of food and water, to make our lives better.
We believe that the benefits of the coral will be proved through the accumulation of user experiences, supported by scientific data. Coral minerals have only just opened the door to further opportunities. We are on a long journey, and are committed to furthering the potential of coral.
We understand the interconnected relationship of every part of the natural cycle of water, both on land and in the ocean, and that for clean water to enter the ocean the journey begins deep in the soil in the mountains, and is purified by the health of the forest and flowing rivers. At the end of their usable life, Sango products and the natural by products of production are recycled, used for tree planting activities in Okinawa, helping to sustain a natural cycle that enriches and purifies the land, water and the sea.
