  • Retail store sales were strong for Fiber-Enriched Green Tea and other foods for specified health uses (FOSHU).
Foods for the Elderly and for Those in Nursing Care
Sales Trends
  • Sales rose for the Toromi Up and Toromi Perfect series of foods for people who have difficulty in swallowing, centered on large-quantity types.
  • Sales increased for the Procure series of nutrient-fortified foods for the elderly.
Dressings and Mayonnaise
Sales Trends
  • Sales volume and value rose steadily for products that meet market demands for improved health, such as Resetta Dressing Sauce, Dressing Diet and Mayodore. However, sales declined overall as a result of last year's rise in vegetable prices during the exceptionally hot summer, as well as the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Soy Protein

Sales volume and value both rose year on year as a result of efforts to revise prices in line with costs amid the ongoing consumer tendency to favor lower-priced products, as well as the use of a business model that integrates production, sales and technological support.

Business Results

As a result, net sales in the Healthy Foods and Soy Protein Business segment declined 3.2% from the previous fiscal year to ¥9,377 million, due mainly to a change in the sales model for mail-order products. The segment posted an operating loss for the period of ¥288 million, an improvement of ¥253 million from the previous fiscal year.
