CEO's Message

SHOWA New Value Creation Unique new value offered by Showa Sangyo

Ever since our establishment in 1936, always adhering to the corporate philosophy of "Contributing to healthy, rich, and varied meals," Showa Sangyo has been engaged in the production and sales of grain products. We process wheat, soybeans, canola, corn, and other grains, which are the bounty of the earth, into such products as wheat flour, premixes, vegetable oils, sweeteners, and animal feed.

While the need to ensure the safety, security and stable supply of food is the focus of ever-growing demands, expectations centering on food are on the rise in view of such developments as the diversification of dining scenes as new lifestyles emerge. We handle various grains in huge volumes. Unleashing synergy based on our unique business model as a "Grain Solution Company," Showa Sangyo will continue offering solutions to the challenges faced by companies involved with food and general consumers.

With an eye to the next round of sustainable development, having formulated the SHOWA Next Stage for 2025 articulating Showa Sangyo Group's long-term vision for fiscal 2025, our 90th anniversary, we are implementing a three-stage Medium-term Management Plan. We have set five key strategies for the long-term vision: 1) Strengthen our fundamental businesses, 2) Expand our business fields, 3) Contribute to solving social issues, 4) Rebuild our platform, and 5) Strengthen stakeholder engagement. We are implementing measures to achieve our vision.

Currently, midway on our journey toward the long-term vision's target year, we are implementing the second-stage Medium-term Management Plan covering the period from 2020 to 2022 that emphasizes "establishment." Inspired by the "SHOWA New Value Creation" basic concept, all the Group's employees are pooling their energy and expertise in a concerted drive to achieve the long-term vision.

With the aim of advancing to the next stage as a Grain Solution Company that delivers satisfaction to all stakeholders, we are stepping up our efforts to remain an enterprise trusted by society. I request your continued support and patronage.
