President Message

The Meiji Group will brighten
its customers’ daily lives through
“Tastiness, Enjoyment, Health and Reassurance.”

The Meiji Group’s mission is to provide innovative products and happiness. We market dairy products, confectioneries, nutritional products, and pharmaceuticals that are indispensable for daily life to customers of all ages, from infants to the elderly. In other words, we provide “Tastiness, Enjoyment, Health and Reassurance.” We will continue to provide advanced value, be closely in tune with our customers’ feelings, and brighten their daily lives. We will also be actively involved in social issues through our business. We will take initiatives in environmentally conscious business activities and efforts toward stable procurement for a sustainable society as well as for the company's sustainable growth.

We are promoting our Medium-Term Business Plan, STEP UP 17 (fiscal 2015- fiscal 2017), and aim to realize the Meiji Group 2020 Vision, our Long Term Business Management Strategy. The plan’s main focus is to accelerate growth and improve profitability. By flexibly adapting to the changing business environment, we will strengthen our competitive advantage and develop our management platform. By greatly exceeding our operating income and ROE target figures in the first year, we successfully accomplished objectives ahead of schedule. Still we will continue pursuing the core themes of STEP UP 17 to address remaining management tasks.

In October 2016, the Meiji Group celebrated the 100th anniversary of its founding. Over the next 100 years, the Meiji Group will make a concerted effort steadily and sincerely to be a corporate group that is trusted by customers and needed in society. As we take on this challenge, we would like to ask for the understanding and support of all our stakeholders.
