 Oils and fats are widely used in processed foods, and they are essential for health, taste and texture. Our food business which started from the production of margarine in 1929, has been working with the highest priority of 'reliability and safety’ and 'deliciousness’. We have focused on responding needs and demands in supply chain markets both domestically and abroad, and provided high value-added oil and fat products adjusted to every regional practice and social situation.

 In this report, we review how we have coped with some topics such as reduction of trans-fatty acids and recent market issues (for example, 'labor shortage’ and 'food loss and food waste’).
