Company Overview and Philosophy

A joint venture of Suntory Beverage & Food Ltd. and the Indonesian food and beverage company GarudaFood Group, PT Suntory Garuda Beverage operates based on a corporate philosophy that combines "serenity" with "action." Serenity means controlling oneself and dealing with issues patiently and by bringing one's concentration to bear. Action, meanwhile, represents the willingness to deal with change fearlessly and rapidly. These two principles do not operate independently but rather are interconnected. Serenity leads to action, and action produces serenity.
