For whom we love, what can we hand down?
For children we love, what can adults do?
For the coming new era,
what contribution can we make?
For the mutually supported world,
what can we give and share?
Prema’s challenge starts by showing our small but
definite presence. This is not possible without help.
We need to do this together with you, the customer,
by dreaming, learning, growing, sharing and developing.
That is the vision we have in order to continue having
a meaningful existence in future society as well.
Macrobiotic Asia is owned and operated by Prema Inc.
“Prema” in Sanskrit means “divine love”.
“Prema” is our registered trade name.
“Prema Shanti” is the combination of the Sanskrit word Prema “divine love”,
and Shanti “inner peace”, which is also our registered trade name.
Our logo (below) symbolizes the following things: life, birth, a mother’s love and the sprout of nature. In our logo we have combined the images of a new being coming to life in a mother’s womb, a mother wrapping her arms around a new blessed life, and the natural power of sprouts budding. It also represents the sun and the moon, in which we include our message of unification, harmonization and the balance of yin and yang.
In 1999, we started our online shop “Binchoutan.com” aimed at the Japanese market. Since then, Prema Inc. has become a specialized trading company handling more than 8000 items ranging from natural foods, ecology goods, natural clothing, to natural skin care and anti electromagnetic wave products. We work with the keywords “mind”, “body”, and “mother earth” each step of the way, in planning, production, distribution, import and export.
Our selection criteria are not based on “popularity” or “profit” but in our belief that the product will be able to support our customers. Therefore, we select only products we can recommend with confidence.
We will continue to promote this concept through our already existing Japanese online shops, the new international online shop, in planning and distributing catalogs and so on. We also intend to keep on developing new Prema original products aimed at making our customers become aware of how it's possible to live a natural and balanced life.
