Quality Assurance

Product Labelling

Labeling on products is checked to ensure that it complies with relevant laws and regulations*, voluntary industry standards, and Suntory Beverage & Food’s own standards. In addition, we endeavor to use accurate expressions that do not cause misunderstanding or misinterpretation, and expressions that are easy for consumers to understand, including in advertisements and publicity.
