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.
- • To live the three values of Our Corporate Philosophy, as follows:
Improving human values
Rigorously maintaining corporate ethics
Creating unity through harmony
- • We are creating a community of "noble people" who have human value and can be generators of (social) innovation.
- • We are contributing to social welfare through a series of programs in social, economic, and environmental areas.
In keeping with our social responsibility as a company to our local community and with our development as a company, PT Suntory Garuda Beverage places high priority on social contribution activities. We believe it is necessary to have programs that are suited to the local community, and accordingly have devised an all-encompassing program called GarudaFood Sehati. The word "sehati" means "empathy," and that concept provides the foundation for the activities we pursue.
Five elements underpin GarudaFood Sehati.
- • Education
- • Public health
- • Environment
- • Social donation
- • Community empowerment
