Communication Map

Basic Approach

The Maruha Nichiro Group is closely involved not only with customers who buy products, but many stakeholders including employees, suppliers, nearby residents, shareholders and investors, along with the global environment.

It is essential to build trustful relationships with stakeholders in order to continually improve corporate value. Therefore, we create opportunities to provide information about the Group and listen to stakeholders' expectations and opinions through various forms of communication.

We actively use the feedback we receive to promote the sustainability of the Group.

Questionnaire for Employees about Integrated Report

We conducted a questionnaire for Maruha Nichiro Corporation employees regarding the Maruha Nichiro Group Integrated Report 2022.

About 70% of the respondents stated that they "understood it very well" or "understood it" in relation to their understanding of the Maruha Nichiro Value (MNV) creation process, while approximately 30% responded with less understanding.

We believe that the penetration of the Maruha Nichiro Value (MNV) creation process among employees is crucial for realizing Maruha Nichiro's Group vision. Therefore, we have created a manga cartoon that explains the purpose and key points of the integrated report in a clear and easy-to-understand manner for our employees.
