What is Ajinomoto Fine-Techno (AFT)?

Ajinomoto Fine-Techno has played a central role in the Ajinomoto group's fine chemicals business, beginning with the development and commercialization of new products using intermediates in amino acid production.
Ajinomoto Fine-Techno, which has inherited the DNA of Ajinomoto, the world’s first company to commercialize monosodium glutamate (MSG) - a type of amino acid for use as a flavor enhancer - will continue to create new value based on its proprietary technologies, thereby contributing to convenience and comfort in people’s lives, and to society at large.
