Declaration of Procurement Policies

The MORINAGA Group has conventionally formulated “materials purchasing policies” and built fair, equitable, and transparent relationships with our trading partners; however, in order to contribute to the pursuit of food safety and reliability as well as to the realization of a sustainable society, we have newly formulated “Procurement Policies” that give even greater consideration to society and the environment.

Strengthening partnerships with business partners

In order to ensure food safety and security and to achieve the realization of a sustainable society, it is essential that we establish partnerships based on mutual trust with business partners in all areas of operation from procurement and manufacturing to distribution. The important element is that both parties mutually understand each other’s perspective and check each other’s product quality management methods, technological strengths, and social and environmental initiatives through detailed and regular communication.
In order to contribute to sustainable social development with business partners and continue to grow, we will make concrete efforts based on the Morinaga Group’s environmental policies by gaining the understanding of our business partners.
