Growing resilience against global pandemics requires a borderless approach to infectious disease control, sanitation and quality management. HYSIA, Japan’s expert in infectious control consulting and hygiene services, is pioneering an Asia-wide network of dedicated professional companies in its field.

“Our industry tends to be domestic not just in Japan but even in America or Europe,” says Taro Kanazawa, CEO. “Because the world is much more connected than five years ago, we must be more proactive and open-minded in fighting borderless threats such as infectious diseases and product contamination.”

HYSIA has built up a network of industry experts in Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and Australia, where it provides comprehensive hygiene management solutions, from consulting, training and audits to specialised disinfection, microbial cleaning and pest management services. Its international team of experts shares the best practices from different countries and makes sure that clients meet the global standard in creating a hygienic environment.

“We cover the 360 degrees of the quality management process,” Kanazawa says. “We emphasise on-site activities – from research and analysis to training and team building – in order to identify the critical control points and provide tools to manage them.”


Such comprehensive services have proven valuable in the pharmaceutical and medical devices, semiconductors, food and beverage, hospitality, and consumer goods industries. Considering the severity of Covid-19, HYSIA has created a free-to-access online training programme that gives companies and individuals the right knowledge about fighting viruses.

HYSIA is expanding its service network across Southeast Asia, India and Australia. Aiming to build synergies in addressing borderless issues such as public health, environmental health and food safety, it welcomes investors and partnerships with research institutes, manufacturers and distributors of disinfection and environmental testing devices, and training service providers towards shoring up local resilience to global threats.

“We want to build a sustainable synergy and offer value to clients and business partners locally and globally,” Kanazawa says.
