Over the many years since our establishment, through the operations of its alcoholic beverages segment and enzymes and pharmaceuticals segment the Oenon Group has made it a topmost priority to help customers find enjoyment and health through food. With this focus, we strive to satisfy our numerous customers through the products and services that we offer. Now operating under a holding company structure, we work toward optimizing the entire Group through the allocation of functions to Group companies. We also maintain a combined customer- and profit-oriented focus throughout our operations. Based on our mid- to long-term business strategies, we are endeavoring to build additional corporate value by expanding our operations and enhancing our earning power.
In recent years, the socioeconomic environment in which we operate has been changing at a dizzying pace and is characterized by a falling birthrate and aging society in Japan, global environmental problems and a growing awareness of food safety and health. Going forward, the Oenon Group will continue to take a customer-centric viewpoint as we deliver products that are safe and secure in our aim to meet the expectations of our customers.
I ask for your ongoing support and encouragement of these endeavors.
Yuji Nishinaga, President and CEO
Oenon Holdings, Inc.
