April 22, 2020【1st Update】

With   "For dairy products high in nutritional value!" as our motto, our group has established Samurai Dairy Products   Pvt in India with Ikaruga Dairy Industry's technology as a base. We have   acquired Global Gap, FSSC22000, and FSSAI, all started in India, and are   managing operations in dairy farms and dairy sterilization factories. In   order to decrease the number of malnourished children even just a little bit,   we continuing to deliver high quality dairy products to the market.

For   the desire to learn! Since 2010, regardless   whether or not the operations are necessary, we have increased the   acquisition cost of every last qualification (there are currently over 90   kinds) from half the sum to the whole sum. Moreover, after acquisition, we   provided the payment of the qualifications, and are continuing the   development of continuous learning. Also, through a donation to the JEES in   2016, we established the Crown Scholarship (a Showa manufacturing   scholarship), and have been working hard on high quality and fair education   being accepted even outside our company.

For   the drive for active participation for women!   Within our company, together with the compatibility and assistance of the   work and households of the employees, active roles of women have been   advancing.  In 2017,  at the Compatibility Assistance Plaza (the   Ministry of Health), we announced our universal main business plan, and in   2019, we announced the women's active participation plan. Due to our male   staff going on childcare leave, we received birthtime compatibility assistance   in 2019, and currently on April 1st, 2020, the percentage of female workers   is 27.8%.

Free   use of technology! Our group has made free use of   selected technology from the time we were founded and made new products from   waste, and are sharing them with the market. Also, alongside manufacturers,   we have acquired industry waste disposal approval, and we are working on   waste problems within our company as well as regionally.

Cross   the fence! Our company has been aiming to expand,   and has been growing alongside the region for quite some time. And now since   2019, we have been working hard together with GAMBA OSAKA as well as the   youth on furthering the regional stimulation and beautification.
