Corporate principle

Contributing to a healthy and fruitful life for all

“The basis of business is built on trust.”

Nisshin Flour Milling founder Teiichiro Shoda said, “We must always remember that a business is connected to society. A company that works solely for its own benefit will not survive for very long. Trust is the foundation of all business.” The Nisshin Seifun Group’s strong devotion to fulfilling our social responsibility and generating sustainable growth is rooted in these words from the Company’s inception and remains in our DNA to this day. We will remain true to our founding spirit as we seek to continue growing as a global corporate group.

Primary Management Objective

The Nisshin Seifun Group’s primary management objective is to maximize its “long-term corporate value” based on the core concepts of “trust,” being “in tune with the changing climate,” and “contributing to a healthy and fruitful life for all.” We strive to develop and enhance our Group management structure, while focusing on allocating resources to those areas where we are currently highly competitive and where potential for growth exists.

Each company of the Group, in harmony with the basic corporate philosophy, will carry out business activities under the banner of “standing on its own and building strong alliances.” This means each company within the Group will conduct its business as an independent entity in the most appropriate way according to its individual business characteristics and market environment, and in so doing, create corporate alliances both inside and outside the Group to strengthen its competitive position.

At the same time, the Nisshin Seifun Group encourages internal innovation while upholding its commitment to social responsibility by complying with applicable laws and regulations, making food safety a priority, and working to protect the environment. Thereby, we seek to achieve maximum support from our stakeholders, comprised of customers, shareholders, employees, business partners, and society as a whole.
