NISSIN FOODS HOLDINGS CO., LTD.
Director, CSO, and Managing Executive Officer
FY 3/2022 in Review
After I assumed the position of CSO responsible for overall Group strategy in 2021, the world entered an era of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity—so-called VUCA. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the situation in Russia and Ukraine, soaring raw materials prices, the sharp depreciation of the yen, and increasing inflationary pressure have made steering through the challenges difficult. Amid these circumstances, we gather information from a micro perspective on the front lines and assess the situation from a macro perspective, looking at trends across global society as a whole and changes in the environment. With this information, we leverage the management planning platform over which I am responsible to address management issues that include how to operate global supply chains, how to incorporate Japan's food security and energy security, and how to manage global risks. Integrating this information and knowledge makes the necessary decisions clearer. For example, when looking at the global market, we understand the situations in the United States, Mexico, and Brazil discretely and locally. However, decisions are made differently when looking from a high-altitude view over the Americas as a whole. The role of our division is to engage in this type of analysis.
