Meiji launched SAVAS in 1980. Now it's Japan's number one protein brand.*

For more than 40 years, Meiji’s research into protein has pursued ease of dissolution through its proprietary manufacturing process, nutritional design for bodybuilding, and exceptional flavor through carefully selected protein ingredients and flavor technology. Our broad lineup of products reflects years of research and covers a wide variety of protein needs.

Milk is the protein source for our Whey Protein and Milk Protein products, while the protein in our Soy Protein products comes from soybeans. Each one has become indispensable for a wide range of customers, from pro athletes pursuing top performance to people exercising to achieve their ideal body.

In 2015, we launched the ready-to-drink SAVAS Milk Protein, which is excellent as a snack replacement or post-workout replenishment. Additionally, we launched a SAVAS yogurt in 2021 and began selling whey protein in China in 2020.

Bringing SAVAS to China

The Meiji Group already operates rapidly expanding businesses in China in the milk, yogurt, ice cream, and confectionery categories. Now, we're strengthening our strategies in procuring raw milk ingredients and focusing our efforts on expanding the sports nutrition business with Meiji New Zealand exporting SAVAS to China.
