We have firm belief with our vision to become the genuine excellent company in Vietnam with “Specialty” in food and health. We are always committed to the sustainable development with Vietnam, based on Ajinomoto Group Philosophy in order to bring the best values of life for people in Vietnam.
On behalf of Board of Directors of Ajinomoto Vietnam Co., Ltd., I would like to express my deepest gratitude to people in Vietnam for your great support to our operation for many years.
Originated from the aspiration of Dr. Kikunae Ikeda to contribute to the improvement of human life’s quality through food nutrition over 100 years ago, Ajinomoto Group was established in Japan in 1909 with the first Umami Seasoning AJI-NO-MOTO®. For more than 100 years, Ajinomoto Group has been continually expanding to become a global company in a wide range of business domain including Food Products and Amino Science.
The figures of 123 factories, a distribution network of 130 countries and total employees more than 34,000 worldwide are the pride of Ajinomoto Group after over 100 years of establishment and development. The great ambition of Dr. Kikunae Ikeda has been developed into the corporate message “Eat Well, Live Well.”, an Ajinomoto credo that still guides us today. In the next chapter of development, we continuously follow the great ambition with our mission to contribute to the world’s food and wellness, and to better lives for the future.
In Vietnam, Ajinomoto Vietnam Company has been through the milestone of 30 years since its establishment. For over 30 years, we have researched the Vietnamese’s taste and created many high-quality seasoning, food and beverage products that meet the expectation of Vietnamese consumers. Starting the first plant located in Bien Hoa I Industrial Zone, Dong Nai, we continued to expand our production by opening the second plant in Long Thanh Industrial Zone, Dong Nai in 2008 and the third plant in Long Thanh also in 2016 that demonstrates our long-term commitment to the Vietnam country and people.
In association with the Group Philosophy, Ajinomoto Vietnam Company is conducting a significant business principle that is to create Ajinomoto Shared Value – “ASV” through our business activities. It helps not only to create Economic values for the company but also to create Social values to resolve social issues and promote happiness and health of people in Vietnam, which enables our Company to achieve sustainable growth. We also would like to contribute as a model citizen in saving energy and natural resources, and to develop food resources in agriculture sector. Above of all, we contribute to improve nutrition status for healthy living through providing delicious and pioneer products; information and knowledge about food, nutrition and health as well as conducting many nutritional projects.
The period of over 30 years is not so short itself; however, it is just the beginning of Ajinomoto Vietnam Company attempt to have a sustainable and long-term development in Vietnam. We have firm belief with our vision to become the genuine excellent company in Vietnam with “Specialty” in food and health. We are always committed to the sustainable development with Vietnam, based on Ajinomoto Group Philosophy in order to bring the best values of life for people in Vietnam.
