Kirin’s Business Domains
Expanding the Business Domains Based on Fermentation and Biotechnology
The Kirin Group has a unique global business portfolio that spans across three domains: Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, and Health Science.
Since its founding in 1907, the Kirin Group has continued to grow for over 100 years. Starting from the beer business, the company expanded into the Food & Beverages domain, and from the 1980s, fermentation and biotechnology have been used to expand into the Pharmaceuticals and Health Science domains. The Kirin Group is working to provide products and services that increase the quality of life for consumers in all of their life stages and at the same time solve the social issues.
A global leader in CSV, creating value across our world of Food & Beverages to Pharmaceuticals
To achieve sustainable growth in these unpredictable times, it is essential to deepen CSV Management*, which creates economic value by addressing social issues. In 2019, we formulated our new Long-Term Management Vision, Kirin Group Vision 2027 (KV2027). Under our growth scenarios of “Strengthening the earnings capability of Food & Beverages businesses,” “Leaping of Pharmaceuticals business,” and “Establishing and fostering the Health Science business,” we will strive to expand our business by solving social issues and become a global leader in CSV by 2027. In the upcoming three-year plan, we will continue to prioritize CSV as the foundation of our management and aim for growth in the areas of Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, and Health Science.
- CSV Management: A management strategy unique to the Kirin Group in which we aim to create economic value through the resolution of social issues and continue sustainably growing, together with society. It is an initiative to meet social needs and solve social issues to create economic value and make that value our driver for further growth.
