Directly Managed by Group CEO
The Living Essentials Group provides products and services, develops businesses, and invests in various fields that directly impact our quality of life. Covering everything from the procurement of raw materials to the delivery of goods to consumer markets, these operations include foods, textiles, daily necessities, healthcare, distribution and retail.
Our strength as a group is that we conduct a well-balanced business throughout our value chains, extending from the upstream sourcing of resources to the downstream retail and food service businesses. By further reinforcing the Group's comprehensive abilities through business investments and affiliates in Japan and overseas, we provide consumers with the kinds of solutions that can further enrich their lives, thereby making a contribution to society. Our business group deals in products and services with which consumers frequently come into contact in their daily lives, and as such our utmost priorities are environmental protection and the provision of safe 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.
