Our wish is to create synergy between the two companies by introducing new technologies and business models in any part of the value chain from raw materials, processing and cooking, distribution, to the final consumer, and to develop new markets that Nissui has never been in before.

2. providing "food" that enriches the mind and body

While "food" has nutritional aspects such as health maintenance and disease prevention, it also has the aspect of contributing to the spiritual enrichment and satisfaction of the people who eat it. Eating well can also lead to the formation of human relationships and communication, as well as enhance quality of life and social skills.
Therefore, we would like to initiate an initiative focused on sensory value.
This initiative aims to ensure that food contributes to the enrichment of the soul by providing the pleasure, excitement, and empathy of eating, in addition to the healthful aspects that food can bring. This initiative requires knowledge from a variety of fields, including sensory design, the science of deliciousness, and user experience. We invite you to join us in our challenge to provide "food" that enriches the mind and body through the pursuit of sensory value!

3. resolution of social issues related to "food

Nissui aims to be a corporate group that continues to be needed by society by working together with stakeholders to solve social issues. Currently, we are working to solve various social issues related to food, such as food loss reduction, sustainable use of resources, transparency in the value chain, and plastic reduction.
We are looking for collaborators who are enthusiastic about working together with Nissui to realize a sustainable future!
