Ever since Kewpie Corporation was established in 1919, its product manufacturing from one era to the next has adhered to an unwavering insistence that good products begin with good ingredients. As a company that handles food items, honesty and integrity have been the hallmarks of our business mindset. This approach reflects the spirit of our founder, who exhorted employees to earn customers’ trust and ensure the long-term continuation of the company by acting on moral principles, striving for originality and ingenuity, and looking after [their] parent's well being (and, by extension, the well being of anybody else who had helped them). It also reflects Kewpie’s core values: our founder’s belief that “the world is fairer than you imagine.”

Impacted by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, people’s lives as well as our everyday values and systems are undergoing unprecedented and dramatic change. While maintaining an unwavering commitment to our corporate philosophy as we carry out our business activities, we will work diligently to ascertain the true nature of things unshackled by the past or conventional practice, change what needs to be changed and proactively take on new initiatives, and transform our business structure into one that can achieve sustainable growth in the future.

Moreover, addressing climate change and preserving the global environment while ensuring that people remain both physically and mentally healthy are becoming increasingly important. We, the Kewpie Group, are committed to passing a sustainable society on to future generations by earnestly addressing various social issues through food.

Guided by our corporate message “love around the kitchen table,” we will contribute to the food culture and health of the world through great taste, empathy, and uniqueness. At the same time, we will strive to be a leading company that focuses on mayonnaise and dressings to transmit the appeal of salads and egg products throughout the world.
