Message from the CEO
Two years have passed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to families who have lost loved ones to this illness, and I wish all those suffering from it a speedy recovery.
I have the greatest gratitude and respect for all of those who have stood up to combat COVID-19.
In the previous fiscal year, the COVID-19 pandemic was compounded by soaring resource and raw material prices, natural disasters, labor shortages, and geopolitical crises, and the Fuji Oil Group continues to experience major impacts and difficulties in its business.
With regards to the situation currently surrounding Ukraine, I hope for peace and respect for human rights.
The changes that we experienced throughout this tumultuous year are irreversible, and on the basis of the realization that we will not be going back to the way situations were prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the coming fiscal year (FY2022) we have enhanced our governance structure and put in place a management structure for each business. We will work to enhance business management as a matter of priority, and transform ourselves in a highly agile and robust company that is resilient to changes in the external environment. As well as strengthening our existing businesses, we shall also take on the challenge of new business in new fields.
In the digital society that has taken rapid strides forward due to the COVID-19 pandemic, those involved in raw materials procurement, production, R&D, sales, and the staffing divisions that support these activities shall work together as one to create venues for bilateral communication to ensure the delicious taste, health, and sustainable value that the Fuji Oil Group offers is conveyed to our customers.
Since the foundation of the Fuji Oil Group, we have tackled issues faced by society using plant-based ingredients.
We shall continue to grow as a company that listens to the voices of consumers, members of the public, and our customers, refines its business, and works to address problems faced by society.
I look forward to receiving your continued support in the fiscal 2022.
President and CEO
