Addressing Changes in the Business Environment While Transforming for the Future of Food

Under our corporate philosophy of “We are committed to harnessing nature’s gifts, to bringing taste and fun, and to contributing to healthy life styles,” the Calbee Group has responded to consumers’ changing needs by developing new products and creating new value. Over the past decade, we have achieved significant growth by increasing revenue in our domestic business and expanding overseas. To remain true to our corporate philosophy and continue to grow, we must transform our existing domestic business base and foster new growth through means such as developing revenue bases in global markets and venturing into new food categories. At the same time, to realize the sustainable society called for in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, we are being called upon to conduct their business in ways that help resolve social issues—something that I believe will help inspire us to innovate.
Under our Long-term Vision for 2030, “Next Calbee—Harvest the power of nature. Creating the future of food,” we will endeavor to accelerate the growth of our overseas business and expand our business in new food categories by ascertaining diversifying customer needs and continuing to provide new value. At the same time, we will support the realization of a sustainable society through co-creation with stakeholders to resolve social issues and initiatives to pass on a healthy society together with a well-maintained environment to the next generation.
