Striving to be a Multi-faceted Food and Beverage Company Trusted Globally

The Suntory Group continues to steadily grow as a corporate group that is expanding its wide range of businesses globally around alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Our driving force is the "Yatte Minahare — Go for it!" spirit, which has been passed down since our founding. We strive to contribute to the realization of more fulfilling lifestyles by boldly stepping up to the challenge to always create new value.

We commit to bring the highest level of quality to all of our products on a global scale. At the same time, we also stay steadfast in continuing to care the food and beverage quality until the point of consumption. Not only to the safety and reliability of the products but also to the taste, fragrance, and ease in using our containers at the point of consumption.

The Suntory World Research Center was established last year as the heart of our research and development to lead the growth of Suntory from now and into the future. This facility endeavors to have the world's leading-edge research and development while promoting intellectual exchange that go across countries and cultures to overcome challenges in developing products with an even higher level of quality in addition to generating new value.

The expansion of activities at the Suntory Group also means a greater corporate responsibility to the local communities and the global environment.

We must satisfy this responsibility to society, and we believe passing down a sustainable society to the generations to come is indispensable for Suntory to become a truly global corporate group. We are actively expanding our efforts based on the spirit of "Sharing the Profit with Society" we have had since our founding and aim to grow as a corporate group that is trusted by people worldwide.

Our mission "In Harmony with People and Nature" is outlined in our corporate philosophy. This mission is the unchanging foundation of the Suntory Group that contributes to creating more affluent lifestyles while simultaneously realizing constant harmony with society and the beautiful global environment by delivering the highest quality products and services to customers around the world. We will always strive for further innovation with the goal of becoming a “Growing for Good” company that realizes a sustainable and vibrant society while continually creating new value.
