Message from the President

“Delicious, Fun, and Healthy”

While taking careful care of the MORINAGA brand,
we intend to fulfill everyone’s expectations through
sustained growth that is true to the MORINAGA Way.

MORINAGA & CO., LTD., was founded in 1899 by Taichiro Morinaga, whose dream was to deliver nutritious, delicious Western confectioneries to the people of Japan; ever since then, we have been perpetuating his dream and pioneering spirit, together with our corporate philosophy of “Delicious, Fun, and Healthy.”

Our mission is to provide new value and inspire our customers through Morinaga products and services. As we approach our 120th anniversary, in addition to maintaining our existing base businesses of Confectionery & Foodstuffs/Frozen Desserts, we are responding to market and customer needs through our health business and expanding our valuable product quality overseas. At the same time, we aim to realize a sustainable society through business activities that contribute to next-generation training, the global environment, and the international community.

In accordance with our heartfelt desire to make children smile in every corner of the globe—embodied in Morinaga’s symbol, the Angel’s Heart—we will continue to accept challenges as we endeavor to further deepen our relationship of trust with our customers.

Eijiro Ota
Representative Director President
