Expanding our overseas operations
In Europe, we have entered a capital partnership with a sales company in Spain and begun the sales of new tea-based beverages jointly developed and manufactured in Japan. We are also promoting product development in the EU market and seeking out new business partners that possess the necessary manufacturing technology. In Asia, we are manufacturing products under our own brand in Thailand where HARUNA Asia is based, and we have started selling these products in countries such as Vietnam and Cambodia. In addition, we have launched the sales of private-brand soft drinks to other neighboring countries of Thailand. At the same time, we are participating in the joint sales of alcoholic beverages, which is a new product category for our company.
