Corporate Tagline

SUNTORY

To our global audience, many new to Suntory, “Follow Your Nature” is our corporate brand promise. It is not just a tagline, but an open door, welcoming employees, consumers, and external stakeholders to understand who we are and what we believe. At the same time, it is an aspirational call to action, inviting people to celebrate and freely express themselves.

In Line with Our Mission

A reflection of our mission — In Harmony with People and Nature — “Follow Your Nature” creates an emotional connection. It supports people in pursuing their individual passions, while also urging them to join us in preserving our planet’s natural resources.

Supporting Our Values

Hand-in-hand with our founder Shinjiro Torii’s favorite expression, “Yatte Minahare,” Follow Your Nature is also about moving forward without fear, accepting challenges and embracing the future. It is in keeping with our desire to help others prosper alongside us by giving back selflessly to the world.

Honoring the Human Spirit

“Follow Your Nature” celebrates people being true to themselves, even as we at Suntory follow our own nature of creating high-quality products to enrich consumers’ lives. Supporting the company’s vision of “Growing for good,” we seek to contribute to society, working with communities and our consumers to make a better, brighter future as we all follow our nature together.

Yatte Minahare – Go for it!

Continuing in the spirit of taking on new challenges exemplified by our founder who trailblazed the way for Western-style liquors such as whisky in Japan, we have broken new ground as a multi-faceted food and beverage company in a variety of new areas of businesses including beer, soft drinks, and health foods. This spirit has been a motivator for our open-minded corporate culture and the challenges we set ourselves to create new value.

› Corporate History

Sharing the Profit with Society

Following the philosophy of Suntory's founder, we believe that business profits should not only be used for reinvestment into the business and providing services to clients and business partners, but for making a contribution to society. Carrying on in his spirit, we are aiming for sustainable growth with our stakeholders.

Coexisting with Nature

Many of our products, including whisky, wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages, are created thanks to such natural bounties as water and agricultural products. With a spirit unchanged since our founding, we fervently promote environmental management, maintaining respect and gratitude for the great workings of nature.
