Top ＞ Corporate philosophy
Our aim is to help people enjoy a rich life through food. The delights of foods know no borders. Focusing on the delights of foods, we continue to offer new types of foods from the viewpoint of our customers in Japan and around the world. SC Foods is a food development and import trading company that focuses on four key fields: the pursuit of safety and security, the development of new products, the use of a global network, and the establishment of a value chain. We interactively connect consumers' demands and producers in order to create new types of foods.
To fulfill our mission to provide safe food, we have set up a dedicated food safety management team, so that we can unify information management, educate employees and provide guidance at production sites with emphasis on food safety management. We have also been working hard to establish traceability, which is vital to food safety, ahead of the industry and have created mechanisms and systems for providing more accurate information. Moreover, we are building a rational global logistics system to secure a stable supply of high-quality . merchandise made of locally procured materials and processed in various parts of the world.
We endeavor to identify market demands in partnership with the food industry, distribution industry, restaurant industry and Home Meal Replacement (HMR) industry and to develop products from the viewpoint of consumers. Taking advantage of our close alliance with distribution companies financed by Sumitomo Corporation and our extensive know-how in food development, we develop new products ahead of the market.
In all aspects of our business, we exercise the collective strength of an international enterprise under the parent organization of Sumitomo Corporation. We have extensive experience in monitoring and grasping the latest trends through our worldwide network, and are able to secure the best and shortest transport route, enabling us to deliver excellent global merchandise to Japanese customers in an optimal way.
In order to improve the value of consistently supplying safe, secure and high-quality foods, we need to centralize and enhance individual business lines, such as production and processing, import and sale, according to each function. Integrated management and investment throughout our business allows us to economically and quickly provide customers with the foods they demand.
