Message from the President

Akinori Yasuhara, President

BioKyowa, Inc. was established in 1982 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri as a manufacturer of L-Lysine, one of the most required essential amino acids for animal feed additive use.

Over the past 30 years, we have evolved from a feed grade single product facility to multiple facilities that can produce various high-quality premium amino acids. Our products are made using state-of-the-art fermentation technologies and ever-improving purification processes under cGMP, HACCP and ISO registered quality management systems.  In addition, our products are certified Kosher and Halal.

The global demand for high-value premium amino acids has recently increased due to the spread of advanced medical care and the rise of healthcare consciousness all over the world.  With this growth, our products are used globally for pharmaceuticals, health foods, and the other industrial applications today.  All of our employees actively work with pride and confidence to convey safe and high quality products to our customers.

We are also enthusiastic about environmental compliance.  BioKyowa has its own large waste water treatment facility that always meets environmental regulations; and we never stop challenging ourselves to improve it, just as we do for our fermentation technologies and purification processes.

We are committed to contributing to the better health and well-being of people worldwide by providing amino acids that are indispensable for all lives.

Thank you for visiting our website, I would appreciate your continuous support.

Akinori Yasuhara, President
