We are honored to be recognized by Marubeni Corporation as a key innovation partner in the paradigm shift to a greener future and sustainable society. Our partnership is being showcased at SusHi Tech Tokyo 2024, Asia’s most prominent event in sustainable technology and innovation.

At SusHi Tech Tokyo 2024, Marubeni Corporation, one of the world’s largest trading companies, is highlighting its collaboration with Nordic Bioproducts Group to drive the green transition and a more sustainable society. This significant event, expected to draw over 500,000 attendees, underscores the significance of our partnership with Marubeni in driving sustainable practices on a global scale.
