The year 2009, in addition to seeing the conclusion of our Third Group Medium-Term Management Plan, marks the 120th anniversary of Asahi Breweries’ forerunner, and the 60th anniversary of the Company’s founding. As such, we remain committed to business initiatives, particularly in alcoholic beverages but also, of course, in soft drinks, food and pharmaceuticals, and overseas, that will encourage further Group growth and profitability.
As in the past, the Asahi Breweries Group will continue to greatly value opportunities to interface with customers, taking to heart the customer feedback received in a never-ending cycle of management reform. In all corporate activities, be assured that respect for the customer’s viewpoint and the spirit of Asahi will always remain key considerations in the actions of each corporate officer and employee.
Your support will be vital to the success of the Asahi Breweries Group as we boldly face the challenges that lie ahead this year.
