Helping Resolve Global Challenges

Climate change and hunger are global challenges. Our business may be affected by sharp increases in raw material prices due to bad weather, damage to production plants from natural disasters, or changes in consumer purchasing trends. At the same time, instant noodles, our mainstay product, make a convenient meal under almost any circumstances, since they have a long shelf life and are simple to prepare. The Group aims for an overseas operating income ratio of 30% or higher by fiscal 2021.

Sales volume and sales channel expansion overseas can not only contribute to achievement of our business objectives, but also help resolve global challenges. The Group is reducing energy used in the course of business and improving productivity as climate change countermeasures and helping combat hunger by selling instant noodles and providing them free of charge in times of emergency.

To more thoroughly fulfill our responsibilities to society, the NISSIN FOODS Group signed the United Nations Global Compact in 2017. In addition to supporting the ten principles in the four areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption advocated in the Global Compact, we will engage in activities to help achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets to be met globally by 2030.
