Kagome was founded in 1899, the day farm owner and company founder Ichitaro Kanie saw the budding of the first tomato seedlings that he had grown himself. From then on, for 120 years, we have been focused on food in Japan, bringing forth new concepts in food over the years.

We have made it a goal to establish the image of the Kagome brand in the year 2025 as that of a “strong company capable of sustainable growth, using food as a means to resolve social issues.” With our integrated value chain from agriculture to production, processing, and sales that makes Kagome one of its kind in the world, we are working to help people live longer, healthy lives, promote agricultural development and regional revitalization, and address world food shortages.

We are now also presenting our vision of transformation from a “tomato company” into a “vegetable company.” Kagome currently offers a variety of vegetable products, but the Japanese diet is still falling seriously short of the target level of vegetable intake. This is particularly why we continue to bring all kinds of innovative new products to the market one after another that utilize the value of vegetables as well as tomatoes. We hope to build sustainable growth by helping people live healthy lives.

Our corporate philosophy at Kagome is “Appreciation” “Nature” and “Corporate openness.” Rooted in our origin of nature and hand-in-hand with all of our stakeholders around the world, which include communities, customers, clients, farmers, shareholders, and our employees, we will spare no effort to enable ourselves to deliver valuable products and services. We hope for your understanding and support.
