KYOTOBIKEN is a Japanese pioneer manufacturer of vaccines for animal, fish and plant. We deliver reliable products via our responsible and integrated operational flow of processes, from R&D through manufacturing to marketing.
KYOTOBIKEN was established in 1948 as Japan’s first private veterinary vaccine manufacturer inspired by the mission of safeguarding public hygiene during the immediate post-World War II period. At that time, infectious diseases such as rabies, classical swine fever, and Newcastle disease, were rampant, posing threats to the health of the Japanese people. Against this backdrop, the government of the day gave approval for privately owned veterinary vaccine manufacturers to operate as suppliers of preventive medicines, and they have played important roles, ever since. KYOTOBIKEN has played an active role in securing public hygiene and stable food supply through its development of various products for protecting animals against diseases at a time when Japan was facing a food crisis.
The main business of KYOTOBIKEN is R&D, manufacture, marketing, and import/export, quality assurance/control, medical affairs, as well as Animal Disease Inspection Center, of veterinary, fish, and plant vaccines, 34 products in total. In addition, we also have a manufacturing company in Vietnam.
