Managerial Philosophy

1. Be people-friendly
 We give priority to people, starting with customers, business partners and employees.
Good products are always born out of good trusting relationships.
Each individual should put him/herself in the shoes of others and approach them with kindness.
We show respect for all people through sound business activities.
2. Be a trusted producer
 We put customer satisfaction first and are always ready to take on the challenge of keeping customers satisfied with our products.
Minoru Umehara, the founder, produced orange peel with all his heart, out of his single-minded desire to let people know “how delicious it can be." His spirit lives on to this day in our company.
We do our best each day to produce the safest possible products which delight the palates of our customers through our stringent quality control procedures.
3. Contribute to the environment and community development
 We aim to be a recycling-oriented company as a respectable corporate citizen.
Our Factory in Nagano pref. is located in the rich natural environment of Tateshina Heights.
We produce candied fruits using fresh, clean, abundant water, a gift from nature in Tateshina.
Our production process requires a large amount of water. To make a corporate contribution to a better global environment we use environmentally-friendly facilities, such as a water treatment facility free from the discharge of sludge.
We will continue to be an ecological company.
