Basic Policy on Sustainability

Contributing to society through seeds

SAKATA Group has a history of more than 100 years by delivering high quality seeds to our clients under the company motto of "Quality, Reliability, Service".
The reason why quality is of utmost importance to the seed industry is that the quality of seeds is not apparent just by looking at them. So we must earn trust by customer to make them buy our seeds. And, in order to gain that trust, we have continued to strive to deliver high quality seeds to our clients every year.

In addition, our management philosophy is "Mutual Prosperity", in which clients, suppliers, and SAKATA Group prosper together, and "Mutual Interest," in which employees, management, and stockholders prosper mutually. And so we established a new management philosophy of Mutual Harmony aiming for continuous coexistence between nature on earth and the society and companies which nature surrounds. Furthermore, we have positioned management that contributes to the sustainability of society and the environment as "sustainability management" and have formulated the Basic Policy on Sustainability to help realize it.

We will continue to carry out corporate activities centered on the development of outstanding flower and vegetable varieties and the supply of high quality seeds.
