Recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake!
True story of Jellice that demonstrated its resilience after a massive earthquake by leveraging good fortune, business connections and favors

— What Jellice, a gelatin manufacturer with 177 years of history and a pioneer of
household-use gelatin powder, has been done and will continue to do —
Gelatin powder product “Jellice” is loved by all generations.
In Japan, the product name Jellice is well known, but few people know about the company Jellice that manufactures the product.
Jellice Co., Ltd. is a long-established gelatin manufacturer with a miraculous history of 117 years.
Having headquarters in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, the company suffered tremendous damage and significant decline in revenue following the Great East Japan Earthquake.
However, seven year later, the company miraculously recovered and achieved the highest recurring profit in its history.
Jellice also contributes to the local community centering on Miyagi Prefecture, to which they are the closest, through CSR activities.
For example, the company gives special science lectures at local elementary schools and develops new specialty products for Miyagi Prefecture in collaboration with the local government and other companies.
In this way, the company is proud of being able to promote the well-being of people.
This book highlights their history of being in love with and growing along with gelatin, and the miracle of their recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Through this book, you will learn about the unshakable commitment and future vision of Jellice toward breakthroughs,
with the passion for manufacturing (monozukuri) that the company has had from the early 1900s to the present day.
