How Ajinomoto survives in Europe as a manufacturer of Umami-seasoning

07 décembre 2017

Paris Club Event

Ajinomoto is the biggest Japanese food and alimentation company with annual sales of 9 billion euros. This business originated from an amino acid "glutamic acid" which was discovered and extracted from kelp by Dr. Kikunae IKEDA of Tokyo Imperial University in 1908. It gave Japan’s staple broth kombu-dashi, the distinctive “Umami (旨味)” taste. The product was then launched as “Ajinomoto” by Saburosuke SUZUKI (founder of the Ajinomoto Group) in 1909. 

The first investment of Ajinomoto in Europe was made in Manfredonia, Italy, in 1963 (closed in 1977) intending regional production in Europe. In 2003, Ajinomoto acquired a French manufacturer and revived it as the European base of Umami-seasoning manufacturing, which operates as its last facility in EU now. Through these experiences, Ajinomoto learnt what global business meant.

The speaker will explain through various cases that the creation of new products, the development of innovative technology and the contribution to the local community is now more important and valuable than ever.
