Hiroshi’s story.

Hiroshi takatoh

Previously I founded an ad-tech company in Japan and built an ad tech suite for detecting malicious ad traffic using AI technology. Finally, a Japanese telecom group acquired my company. And then, I founded Teatis is because I lost my ex-wife to cancer. I found her cancer in the very late stage, so it was difficult to cure by medical treatment.

So I researched other options through food as a medicine. I realized this space has many possibilities that are still undervalued. Also, suppose more patients can easily access real food as medicine.

In that case, it can be innovative and bring a huge impact on their health. Therefore, I decided to found, can also say started Teatis with doctors and food scientists.

Science-forward rather
than product-forward.

We teamed up with many doctors to prove our product’s performance.
Dr. Numata already started to conduct clinical research with us.

Committed to
the real issue

In the united states, there are over 122M people diagnosed with diabetes and pre- diabetes. Why is diabetes rapidly increasing, and why do people need to continue to use medications?
Teatis’s mission is to solve diabetic issues via a science-backed nutrition suite.

What does
Teatis mean?

The name "Teatis" comes from the Greek goddess “Thetis", who is portrayed as the goddess of the sea and the savior who saved the gods from suffering. Also she is the mother of Achilleus and she gave him immortality.
We want our brand to become a sort of savior of people with diabetes. As it’s made from seaweed, we wanted to include the image of the sea in our brand name.
