In 1984, ITO EN pioneered the world's first canned green tea beverage Kan-iri Sencha. Five years later, in 1989, we introduced Oi Ocha, which is currently our flagship brand. Over the years since its launch, Oi Ocha has developed into a brand loved by consumers across Japan thanks to our rigorous pursuit of taste and quality based on the use of no flavorant additives and 100% domestic tea leaves. Through our efforts, we will ensure that Oi Ocha continues to be a customer favorite for years to come.
Moreover, ITO EN will continue to create brands loved by consumers across Japan, including vegetable drinks such as Jujitsu Yasai (Vegetables Galore) and Ichinichibun no Yasai (A Day's Worth of Vegetables), coffee beverages such as Tully's Coffee, and tea drinks under the TEA'S TEA brand.
