In order to realize a sustainable society, we will face social changes and embody "Joy for Life® - Bringing joy to the future through food."

The J-Oil Mills Group has formulated “Joy for Life®: Bringing joy to the future by food” as the vision that represents the future it aims for. In this vein, we strive to realize a sustainable society. With our origins as a supplier of oils essential in our lives, through good taste, health, and low burden, we endeavor to bring more joy into the future. These are the concepts inherent to our concept of “Joy for Life®.” The environment surrounding the food industry presents a wide range of challenges, and promoting sustainability is essential to achieving our vision.

Last year, the Group revised its priority materiality, defining the new materiality as “realizing a sustainable society through stable food supply,” “contributing to the well-being of all through food safety and security,” “respect for diversity and enhancement of employee engagement,” and “strengthening corporate governance.” Nowadays, it has become natural for companies to take responsibility to help realize a sustainable society and contribute to people's well-being. To pass the world's limited resources on to future generations, our generation needs to do more than just reduce its environmental impact. Recently, the importance of “Business and Human Rights” in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment has been attracting attention. Such initiatives are of growing international concern from the perspective of meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition to efforts to reduce environmental impact, we consider respect for human rights to be a fundamental premise of our corporate activities, and accordingly, we promote sustainable procurement initiatives in our supply chain.

The J-Oil Mills Group's value/purpose is to reap nature's potential and support efforts to supply food of reliable quality. We will continue working with our stakeholders to enhance corporate value and resolve social issues.
