Directly Managed by Group CEO
The Living Essentials Group focuses its activities in the fields of clothing, food and home-oriented living, including the medical field and use of media, and anticipates the demands of consumers and works to provide the goods and services that consumers wish for promptly and whenever needed. In areas from material procurement to the consumer market, we trade in products including foods, clothing, paper, packaging materials, cement, construction materials, and medical materials and provide various services.
Our strength as a group is that we conduct well-balanced business throughout our value chains, extending from the upstream sourcing of materials to the downstream retail and foodservice businesses. By further reinforcing the Living Essentials Group's comprehensive abilities through business investments in Japan and overseas, we provide consumers with the kinds of solutions that can further enrich their lives, and in this fashion make a significant contribution to society. Our business group deals in products and services that consumers frequently come into contact with during their daily lives, and as such we place the utmost consideration on environmental issues and the provision of "safe and reliable" food products.
With the economic growth and expanding population of emerging countries and biofuel demand on the rise, the balance of global demand for food resources and other primary commodities has changed significantly, leading to tougher competition for resource procurement. On the consumer side, meanwhile, a tendency towards increased diversity in value and lifestyles has made it imperative for companies to react to consumer needs swiftly and accurately. Amid these changes in the environment surrounding the Group, we will leverage our strength in developing operations so as to ensure a proper balance throughout the value chain from upstream to downstream and further strengthen our earnings base by continuing to boost our primary commodity procurement capability and enhancing our distribution and service functions. We will also aggressively develop our business in overseas markets with growth potential. We are aiming to achieve sustainable growth through these activities.
