Welcome to DIC LIFETEC's Spirulina

As a world's first company to be successful for commercial production of Spirulina in 1977, Dainippon Ink and Chemicals, Inc (current name: DIC Corporation) have endeavored to stay at the leading position in spirulina business. Today we operate 2 sophisticated spirulina farms in the world, and consolidated total production capacity is about 800 tons per year, which makes us the world largest spirulina producer. We would like to emphasize the advantages of our DIC Spirulina, and its details.

Please be aware of imitation case of Linablue®
