Message from the President & CEO
Recognizing each other,
Towards building a society where people can work
with the Challenging spirit that may even deviate from the norm.
We aim to promote D&I in the ways that are expected
of F&LC and take another leap forward together
with our people who have diverse personal qualities.
President & CEO
Our corporate philosophy at FOOD & LIFE COMPANIES includes the action guideline: “Diversity and respect for individuality”. Accepting diversity and leveraging the personal qualities of each individual while helping them develop is what a company must do to continue providing value to all stakeholders. I believe that when our workers feel they are participating in their company or organization in their own ways they achieve personal development and new value is created, which translates into the social contribution that we aim to achieve.
We have continued to enhance the performance of our business since our foundation. I believe that our growth has been driven by nothing less than the personal development and active participation of each one of our employees, who are diverse in terms of gender, age, nationality, race, ethnicity, ability and other attributes.
In 2021, we established the D&I Promotion Committee, whose members include internal and external officers. Having set listening to the voices of employees as a priority task, we have been engaged in activities including awareness-raising activities to deepen understanding of D&I, the establishment of systems for building a better working environment and the enhancement of measures to develop human resources.I am sure that each one of these initiatives will be a part of the foundation for even more active participation and even more brilliant accomplishments by our diverse people.
We will continue to exceed customers’ expectations for Umai! (Tastes good!), bring excitement beyond imagination, and ensure their satisfaction is higher than our prices together with more and more colleagues while promoting D&I and implementing outside-the-box thinking as is expected of F&LC.
