Rich Dietary Life, People's Happiness

Our mission is to realize “People’s Happiness”
by offering a “Rich Dietary Life”,
as we value the blessings of nature,
which are the sources of food production.

We think a “Rich Dietary Life” consists of
the purchase of safe and secure products at reasonable prices for everyone,
the enjoyment of diverse food that is rich in seasonality and regional characteristics,
and the inheritance and nurturing of food culture.

We think “People’s Happiness” consists of
family get-togethers,
bonds with other people,
and a healthy and wholesome life.
