Creation of sustainable food resources
We started our research on soybeans in 1957 and began selling textured soy protein in 1969. We develop flavor technologies using only plant-based ingredients through a combination of oil and fats, and proteins, with emulsified and fermented ingredients. In July 2022, we launched our flagship GOODNOON initiative to fulfil the vision stated in our Fuji Oil Group Management Philosophy. The report presents the development of new ingredients and technologies, as well as the R&D for the next-generation of plant-based protein ingredients and expansion of the PBF (Plant-Based Food) market in Japan.

Sustainable procurement
We have a Responsible Sourcing Policy for our key raw materials-palm oil, cocoa, soybeans, and shea kernels. Linked to this, we promote sustainable procurement activities for raw materials, taking into consideration the natural environment of agricultural land, labor environment, human rights, etc. We have set medium- and long-term targets and KPIs for sustainable procurement for each of the four raw materials. The report presents our efforts to achieve the KPIs.
