Comment from Tomoyasu Ishii, President and CEO
On behalf of Ishii Foods, I would like to ask everyone involved in this “Region and Season” project to lead us to receive the Food Industry Technology Achievement Award. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of you.
“Food companies cannot make good products unless they have access to delicious ingredients.” The “Regional and Seasonal” business focuses on local foodstuffs, cooks high-quality foodstuffs by devising the growing environment and cultivation methods in a way unique to the region, and works together with producers to develop products. . Through our products, we aim to increase the number of “fans” of regions and ingredients, and aim for a cyclical business model that allows producers to sustainably produce and develop high-quality ingredients.
We will continue to do our best to develop this business along with our philosophy of “making truly delicious food.”
