Tanita is a world leader in precision electronic scales. With almost 50% of its domestic market share, the name of Tanita is now a household word in Japan. The company's success and expanding global presence is the result of superior technology, unique design, and high manufacturing standards that have earned ISO 9001 certification, CE marking, membership in the JQA (Japanese Quality Association), FDA clearance and the Good Housekeeping Seal.In addition to the parent company headquarters in Tokyo, Tanita maintains six sister companies strategically located to meet the challenges of international business.Tanita commissions the Annual American Body Fat Perception Poll, a national research survey to measure Americans' understanding of important health and fitness issues. To date, poll findings confirm Americans' lack of understanding which may be putting them at increased risk for serious health complications. In addition, most falsely believe that reducing body fat is a short-term proposition.Tanita sponsors a Research Networking Program to develop credible research into body composition issues. Tanita makes its equipment (professional and consumer) available and serves as a clearing house for up-to-the-minute information on weight management.
Tanita is an active, charter member of the Partnership for Healthy Weight Management, a Federal Trade Commission sponsored coalition to promote sound guidance for achieving and maintaining healthy weight. It is comprised of over 40 organizations and individuals from industry, public advocacy, government agencies, scientific associations and academia.Together with other concerned organizations, Tanita has developed a Public Service Announcement (PSA) campaign targeting the professional medical communities regarding the risks and implications of obesity and other weight management issues. The first of these messages appeared in the July 1999 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and American Family Physician.Tanita proudly donates time, equipment, funding, and other resources to a variety of community and school events at local, state, national, and international levels.
