About Us

President’s Message

Thank you for visiting our website.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude to our customers for their continued support.

Since the beginning of last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the economy and on our lives. However, a positive outlook for the economy and for our lives is finally in sight thanks to the prompt development of vaccines and their subsequent rollout. We profoundly appreciate the daily efforts made by medical professionals and essential workers. We look forward to the earliest possible restoration of pre-COVID-19 normality.

As you see, our homepage features blue and white arrows as if they are heading towards the sky in addition to the character strings of "Work in partnership with customers to contribute to the evolution of food" and "IFSM 2.0."

The phrase of "Work in partnership with customers to contribute to the evolution of food" is our mission. IFSM 2.0 represents our vision of ourselves. Using a numerical figure it plainly denotes our vision of a designer of food connections. We are still IFSM 1.2 or 1.3. In an effort to become IFSM 2.0, we are pushing ahead with actions towards a business model that focuses on solutions to customers' problems, while firmly maintaining our conventional business model of offering functions. The image consisting of blue and white arrows pointing upwards symbolizes our firm resolution to fulfill our mission of contributing to the evolution of food by conducting these actions.

We are an ITOCHU Group company that deals comprehensively in principal food materials.
As a member of the Group, we will follow its corporate mission of Sampo-yoshi, its Guideline of Conduct of I am One with Infinite Missions, and its market-oriented perspective. In parallel with that, we will endeavor to achieve IFSM 2.0 and become a company that is needed by customers and society.

Hideyori Kondo,
President & CEO
