The history of
In 1921 HOKKAN Group started by producing canned food, a new form of food in Japan, and went on to manufacture beverage cans, PET bottles, and into business fields other than food and beverages. We have also expanded to overseas markets. For over 100 years we have continuously responded to people’s needs in line with the times but maintained the same passion and sincere attitude to manufacturing since our early days.
HOKKAN Group will continue to embark on new challenges as a pioneer of the times.
A century-long history since the founding
It all started
from a small can
It all started from a small can of crabmeat
Our roots, HOKKAI CAN WAREHOUSE was born in the City of Otaru, Hokkaido in 1921.
In this land blessed with an abundance of seafood from the northern sea, the first products we made were canned salmon and crabmeat, which were still quite rare at that time.
This new technique of canning food provided a good way to preserve crabmeat when crabs used to be so bountiful that they were often thrown away. Canned crab soon became a popular export product.
Garnering popularity among not only Japanese consumers but in Western countries, canned food grew to be a star industry of the times.
We continued to launch other types of canned food such as asparagus, sweet corn, milk and butter, using the blessings of the land of Hokkaido and became a driving force to spread a new food culture.

canned or bottled
You may often purchase canned or bottled drinks, but have you ever thought about the process till they are manufactured?
Among the various products HOKKAN Group manufactures, bottled and canned beverages best showcase the collective strengths of the Group.
Beverage products are comprised of the container (can, PET bottle, etc.) and the content (tea, fruit juice, etc.). HOKKAN Group can undertake almost all of the processes to produce such products.
While HOKKAI CAN manufactures the container, NIHON CANPACK develops and manufactures the beverage to fill that container and performs the filling process as well. OS MACHINERY produces the factory machines and molds necessary to make and fill the containers.
Let us show you the back stages of beverage production with world’s top quality and speed, realized through collaboration among Group companies.
