Raw Material & Procurement Quality
The Kewpie Group adheres to the “Quality First” principle at every step in the supply chain, from raw material procurement to product manufacturing, containers and packaging, sales, and safety assessment. Underpinning this approach is our commitment to supplying good products, which has guided us since the company was first founded. Our fundamental stance is to take full responsibility for quality through direct involvement of Kewpie and its Group companies in every process.
Good Products Begin with Good Ingredients
We honor the belief of Kewpie’s founder, Toichiro Nakashima, that good products begin with good ingredients. Everything we do is based on this idea.
Producer and Supplier Visits are Crucial to Sourcing Good Ingredients
Our dedicated staff regularly visit suppliers to share our fundamental ideas about food production and join forces to make improvements.
In selecting new suppliers, we first visit them to communicate our passion for and approach to quality, and to check the manufacturing environment. We deal with trusted suppliers after confirming that they have taken steps to prevent the insertion of foreign matter into products and are capable of supplying good ingredients.
