Morinaga & Co., Ltd. (TYO 2201) today announced new medium-term targets for procuring 100 percent of its cacao beans, palm oil, and paper (for product packaging) from sustainable sources, in order to contribute to realizing a sustainable society through food.
The Company was already making efforts to realize a sustainable society through food and resolve social issues through its business activities by pursuing initiatives such as choosing FSC®-certified paper when procuring raw materials, and biomass plastics and inks, and reducing its use of plastics.
The Company considers its key tasks as a food manufacturer to be delivery of safe, reliable products to customers and procurement of sustainable raw materials that are not harmful to the global environment or society. Accordingly, it has now set medium-term targets for its products in Japan.
The Company will continue coordinating and collaborating with its stakeholders to pursue sustainable procurement throughout its supply chains.
