Message from the President

We have upheld ”to present genuine valued products,” as our corporate philosophy, but considering again about what is a genuine valued product, we firstly think of the basic product value, such as taste, production methods, and commitment to raw materials. The second is corporate responsibility to guarantee food safety and security, and the third is the spirit of the SDGs to make a sustainable social contribution to the environment and producers involved in the product.

The first is the value of the product itself, while the second and third are the corporate attitude, which is directly related to customers trust. We believe that products with real value are those offered by companies that are valued for their products themselves and trusted by their customers. We, all of us would like to understand once again the concept of “products with genuine value” and keep on asking questions about it, so that we can receive even greater recognition and trust from our customers in the future.

We will continue to strive for the development of the industry, and we look forward to your continued patronage of our company.
