With our “Semi-custom Production,” the standard
13-month schedule can be shortened to as little
as 6 months, making it the perfect option for customers
who want to shorten the development period.
- *Appearance may vary depending on the gummy type and whether or not it has an original mold.
- *Gummies sold on the commercial market contain around 40 to 50g per bag. When manufacturing in the smallest lot size, 200kg, around 4,000 to 5,000 bags will be produced.
For those who would like to shorten the development period

For those requesting original molds

*This schedule is only an estimate. Changes may occur depending on difficulty of the mixture and production schedule.
10 months after production
We evaluate and set best-by dates assuming the following conditions.
(1)Gummies will be stored in cool areas below 28℃ which avoid direct sunlight, high temperatures, and high humidity.
(2)OPP20/VMPET12/CPP25 will be used for bagging material. ［If the standards set in these conditions are not met, we will need to perform accelerated shelf-life tests (estimated to take 2 to 3 months). ］
Shape, Flavor, Hardness
There are 120 possible combinations in all.

- *Our company produces gummies by first shooting gummy filling through an injection nozzle into a starch mold (flattened corn starch) that has been pressed and shaped, and then drying it.
- *Since it is difficult to create 3D-style gummies when filling into starch molds, the filled side will be flat.
- *If using specially manufactured molds, it may be necessary to use a special nozzle to match its shape when filling. In such cases, a separate fee of ￥1,200,000 or more will be charged.
We will make new estimates as we move forward with meetings and negotiations.
We also accept orders for final processing (packaging) and packaging preparation.
Gummies’ primary ingredients include glucose syrup, sugar, gelatin, processed starch products, acidulants, flavoring, coloring, emulsifiers, and polishing agents.
- used for adding sourness. Also mixed in to stabilize gummy quality.
- used to add taste. It’s also possible to adjust strength of flavor.
- natural coloring agents are used. Coloring may fade when exposed to fluorescent light or sunlight for extended periods of time.
*We recommend using aluminum packaging or packaging with an evaporated aluminum coating to keep out light.
- used primarily as a defoaming agent.
- Polishing agents
- used to prevent gummies from sticking to one another after leaving the starch mold.*We also use oblaat, a thin edible layer of starch, to help prevent sticking.
Gummies gradually turn brown over time by nature of gelatin’s composition.
Also, many commonly used natural colorants fade and change colors due to heat. Red, purple, and blue pigments are especially prone to show drastic changes in color. (Yellows and oranges, on the other hand, are comparatively resistant to change.)
The truth is that it’s impossible to prevent fading and discoloration entirely, even when using heat and light resistant natural coloring agents.
We consider some degree of discoloration and fading to be acceptable, but will deem a material unfit for production if discoloration or fading is severe.
