Orion Breweries, Ltd. was established on May 18, 1957, when Okinawa was still under the control of the U.S. military occupation government, for the purpose of providing employment to young and other people in and helping to develop viable and independent local economy of Okinawa. The company has experienced many challenges since its establishment. Our current success owes much to the great support of the central and local governments and the long-standing patronage of our customers. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for their generosity that has been extended to us for many years. We will continue our commitment to the development of local industry and society in cooperation with local communities under our Corporate Philosophy: "Gratitude, Coexistence and co-prosperity, Contribution to local communities, Promotion of healthy food culture."
We are in times when the needs of customers are constantly changing. While ensuring the safety of products as our first priority issue, we will work hard for the further enhancement of product quality and R&D of new products to meet customers' increasingly diverse needs. With more than 50 years in operation, Orion is now working to open up new frontiers in business. The management and all the employees will unite their efforts under the shared spirit of "persistence and dedication," advocated by our founder, Sosei Gushiken, to continue to take on new challenges. We would appreciate your continued support and guidance.
