We, S.Ishimitsu & Co., Ltd., have been working over 100 years since the foundation, with particular devotion to “food” and caring the mind of contribution to the world through “food”.
Firstly, we started the business in the land of Los Angeles, delivering nostalgic Japanese food to Japanese people, who had moved to live in the United States. Thereafter, we transferred the company base to Japan, dedicated in propagation of coffee, which was still rare that time and engaged in creation of new food culture. The life with coffee combined with diversification of eating habits developed the food service industry and we grew from simple coffee specialized trading company to the supplier of foods for commercial use. More recently, our business of conveying Japanese food culture to the overseas is also growing.
Consumers’ needs for “food” and the social environment surrounding “food” are changing every day and seconds. However, no matter the world is, we strongly wish to continue being a company that supports the happiness of consumers through “food”.
For that purpose, we are working toward becoming a company that continues for 200 years, 300 years. In the past 3 years, we have reviewed to where, what and how to sell and strengthened our finances. We also strengthened our human resources by reviewing workers’ treatment and promoting education. For the next 3 years, we will endeavor our full-fledged efforts to increase not only economic added value but also social added value.
In order to remain as an unchanged presence even after 200 years, we will continue changing.
