Our Philosophy

Since its founding, the Ajinomoto Group has been consistently engaging in initiatives to resolve social issues through its business. By improving economic value through the creation of shared value with society and local communities, these initiatives have contributed to the Group’s growth. These kinds of initiatives have been named ASV (The Ajinomoto Group Creating Shared Value). We have positioned ASV at the core of the Group’s corporate philosophy “Our Philosophy” as we strive to realize our mission and vision adopted under this philosophy.
