Manufacturing system

FINE | 株式会社ファイン > Business > Manufacturing system
For over 40 years, we have manufactured all health foods in our own factories under strict quality control. We have acquired ISO9001 certification, which is the world quality standard, and we manufacture everything from raw materials to products in a factory equipped with optimal equipment. In addition, we have obtained organic JAS certification and GMP conformity certification, and we can handle organic materials more safely and reliably. We want to deliver safe and high-quality products with all our hearts to satisfy as many customers as possible. Our wishes will continue to be the same.

Policy / system

Quality policy
It is expected that customers’ interest in health will continue to grow. In order to meet such demands, we have established the following quality policies.

1. Make products from the customer’s point of view with sincerity.
2. Work is constantly being improved to eliminate waste.
3. Each employee should always work with an awareness of quality improvement and production efficiency improvement.
Collaboration with R & D
At the Fine Bioscience Research Center (FBRC) on the premises of Osaka University, we are constantly searching for new functional materials that will be the basis of new products. The results obtained there are passed through commercialization research, safety tests, stability tests, etc., and then prototypes and tests are repeated at our factory, and are utilized in the manufacture of products. Through this industry-academia collaboration system, we provide genuine health foods that can contribute to extending healthy life expectancy.
To an open factory
A tour passage has been set up on the first and second floors of the Harima Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (HAMTC), which is the core factory, and some production processes are open to the public. We are planning an event where we will explain in an easy-to-understand manner to our customers and customers how our products are made, and to sample and sell them directly. In addition, we will actively hold tours of our factory for children and would like to contribute to the community through such educational activities.

Quality control

We have established a quality assurance system to pursue food safety.

Manufacuturing flow

  • STEP 1Accepting raw materialsAccepting raw materials

    Record information on incoming raw materials and confirm that they meet acceptance criteria. Abnormal raw materials are excluded here.

  • STEP 2WeighingWeighing

    Weigh the raw materials used for tableting and granule processing. We will double check to make sure there are no mistakes.

  • STEP 3GranulationGranulation

    It hardens powders and fine particles into granules. With the introduction of a new model, we are working to improve the physical properties of granules and shorten the granulation time.

  • STEP 4MixingMixing

    Mix multiple powders with different specific densities using a mixing inversion machine. With the introduction of new models, we are increasing the variety of finishes.

  • STEP 5TabletingTableting

    We will make tablets according to the customer’s request, such as round shape, triangle shape, unique heart shape, etc. of various sizes.

  • STEP 6FillingFilling

    We have installed a high-speed sachet machine and are operating with a production capacity 13 times that of conventional products. It is a fully automated line that does not touch people.

  • STEP 7PackingPacking

    By installing a boxing automation robot instead of the conventional manual work, we are shortening the time and improving the production capacity.

  • STEP 8ShippingShipping

    We will make a final check of the product, such as damage to the packaging, and ship it to the customer. And that information is recorded and stored.
