‘Bringing delicious food and dishes
 to everyday meals, and providing
 enriching experiences to our customers.’
We as COMPANIES aim to collaborate
to fulfill that aspiration.

On April 1, 2021, FOOD & LIFE COMPANIES LTD. changed its company name from Sushiro Global Holdings Ltd. It remains our goal to bring delicious food and dishes to everyday meals, and provide enriching experiences to our customers. As a company, we aim to bring together individuals who can collaborate to fulfill that aspiration. This is the philosophy behind the name “FOOD & LIFE COMPANIES.”

FOOD & LIFE COMPANIES has grown mainly through its Sushiro-brand kaiten (revolving lane) sushi restaurant, initially started in Osaka in 1984. We currently operate more than 600 Sushiro restaurants, located primarily in Japan and elsewhere in Asia, as well as other businesses including the Sugidama brand of casual sushi izakaya (Japanese-style pub). For ten years we have maintained the highest sales in the Japanese kaiten sushi restaurant market,* and in 2017 we were relisted on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, boosting our corporate value as a Japanese food-service enterprise.

Looking ahead, we intend to offer delicious foods throughout the world by developing a wider range of food-related businesses. We will continue challenging into the future, focusing on the three priority themes below as we pursue further growth.

  • ● Development and worldwide deployment of existing brands
  • ● Creation or discovery, development, and expansion of new brands and food-service formats
  • ● Reinforcement of our competitive advantages in worldwide ingredient development, procurement, and supply chain management

Furthermore, as our operations expand, we believe that an important responsibility we must not forget is to be mindful of the UN sustainable development goals.

My experience to date has convinced me that Japan’s food-service industry is extremely competitive internationally in terms of both quality and cost performance. I believe that by making such value available in cities all over the globe, we can turn food-service brands of Japanese origin into brands that are seen and enjoyed everywhere in the world, enabling us to contribute to society by providing a new core industry for Japan.

Today we embark on a new beginning as we welcome the KYOTARU CO., LTD. into the COMPANIES. All of us will work in unison to offer great-tasting food, aiming to further grow and develop each of our brand businesses so that we can be valued by the public more than ever before.
Discovering new tastiness,
Sharing moments of joy.
We look forward to your continued support for FOOD & LIFE COMPANIES.
