Message from top management

The basic management philosophy of our group is to create and provide joy, and this serves as the guiding principle for all our activities as we engage in business as a corporate group that contributes to the local society.

In recent years, as lifestyles change and values diversify, customers are increasingly discriminating about products and services. In particular, brand-consciousness and demand for genuine articles are growing stronger year after year, so we believe that the ability to plan products and services in response to customer demand will determine the future of our group.

In the midst of these circumstances, we have made it our corporate vision to become a general producer of original and shop brands of regional sweets, and based on the theme of creating high value, we are continuing to promote measures aimed at developing new products and increasing sales of flagship products (conversion to original brands). Moreover, we seek to strengthen the management foundation and achieve further growth by pursuing regional and specialty shop characteristics through items like San-in’s “Okashi no Kotobukijo,” Tokyo’s “Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory,” Hokkaido’s “Otaru Yogashiho Letao” and Kyushu’s “Akai Fusen” to develop shop brands.

Interest is also very high in consumer food safety. At our group, we recognize the ensuring of food quality and safety as the most important management issue and will continue to ensure thorough compliance and strengthen our quality management system.
We will create an energetic and appealing corporate group with the courage to come up with flexible and novel ideas and venture into completely unknown domains without getting caught up in existing stereotypes as we seek further growth through the creation of high value and the establishment of an overwhelmingly strong brand.
