IWATSUKA CONFECTIONERY CO.,LTD. was fortunate enough to celebrate its 70th Anniversary in 2017,
thanks to our customers, business partners, shareholders and the warm support from the
local community over the years. We are sincerely grateful.
70 years ago, the then small, snow-covered village of Iwatsuka was a poor farming community
where life depended on the household heads going off to the city to do seasonal work every winter.
Then IWATSUKA Agricultural Processing Factory was founded in 1947 by two villagers who were
determined to establish a local industry to free the community from such seasonal insecurities.
This was the origin of our “ founding spirit, ” of coexisting with the community through the link of
agricultural processed foods.
It constitutes the bedrock of our management philosophy and directs us to this day.
Japanese society is facing “the reality of a 21st century-type consumer society,” where business
environments are changing drastically. Issues to be resolved are abound and urgent. We must adapt
to this change and overcome obstacles by remembering our founding spirit.
We must continue to embark upon new challenges through a spirit of creation and cooperation to
create new social and economic value.
The IWATSUKA CONFECTIONERY CO.,LTD. Group, as a creator of delicious rice flavor, will uphold its resolution to
use only 100% domestic rice,
and to spread the Japanese food culture of BEIKA, along with smiles that say “ Delicious ! ”
throughout the world.
