AKAO is the only company producing laminated aluminium in Tokyo. It uses a process of casting by intense cooling similar to the one used by the main companies in this activity.
AKAO has succeeded in the production of aluminium and aluminium alloy thanks to its integrated production system.
The aluminium is a material with strong demands thanks to its impressive characteristics: environment-friendly, light weight, recyclable, ease of use.

The "VAT" system is a container developed to preserve the freshness of any ingredients and guarantee food safety:
Its durability is doubled compared with traditional aluminium container
The flat bottom offers a superior resistance and guarantee hygiene
Multiple "VAT" can be stacked easily and efficiently
Freezing, cooling, thawing are quicken compared to other materials. Thermal conductivity is 3 times superior to steel, 13 times superior to stainless steel and 430 times superior to plastics.
Improved food safety: the aluminium does not contain any toxic substance and is particularly adapted to protect the freshness of ingredients. Also, it does not transfer any taste to the products.
