T. Hasegawa Co. (長谷川香料株式会社) is a major producer of flavors and fragrances with sales of ¥ 47,752 million in 2005.[1] The company is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TYO: 4958).


T. Hasegawa was established in 1903 as Hasegawa Totaro Shoten in Tokyo, Japan by Totaro Hasegawa. In 1941, Shozo Hasegawa succeeded his father at the company. In 1961 T. Hasegawa Co., Ltd. was founded with Shozo Hasegawa as President and took over all business of Hasegawa Totaro Shoten. The new company established headquarters in the prestigious Nihon-bashi district of Tokyo. The strong demand for Hasegawa products resulted in establishing Hasegawa’s first overseas production facilities in California in 1978 and the formation of T. Hasegawa USA.

On December 18, 1998, Tokujiro Hasegawa, a grandson of Totaro Hasegawa, was appointed President. Shozo Hasegawa was designated as Chairman of the Board, and Mr. Ryoshiro Hayashi as Vice Chairman.

In March 2000 T. Hasegawa was listed on the Tokyo 2nd stock market, and by March 2001 T. Hasegawa was moved to the Tokyo 1st stock market.
