Introduction of ourselves
Respect all people and materials
We respect all the employees and all the materials we use as they all have their own precious lives. We sincerely wish that all employees can thoroughly develop their abilities and live their lives lively. We strongly believe that those employees bring their vigor into the company. In the meanwhile, we have great appreciation to the materials we use, such as wheat flour, hen’s egg, sugar, butter, and so on. We know that all materials are gifts from a wealth of nature. We always make use of them with great care, and delivering the products on which we put a new life is our mission.
What is FSC certificate
FSC is a system that end consumers can purchase the products that are made of eco friendly materials by choosing FSC labelled products. Once consumers buy FSC labelled products, it contributes to the preserving and supporting of sound forests on the earth.
How ITO BISCUITS contributes
We use FSC certified materials for packages of our products, such as Languly.
We adopt eco trays that are made from the styrofoam of used trays for other products.
Disable people from 20s to 50s work at the factory for making eco trays, which supports their independence.
Students in elementary schools in Koto area of Tokyo are supposed to do this factory tour in their school programs. Enlightenment of environmental concerns and development of mutual understanding with disable people are facilitated through this factory tour and communication with them.
