Purpose & Values

At Ajinomoto Foods North America, we “Eat Well, Live Well,” as our founders established more than 100 years ago. This has many facets that we feel are best explained with our new Purpose and Values. They guide how we work together and what we offer to the world.

Our Purpose

We are foodies at heart and good citizens in our daily lives. But our larger purpose is why we choose to work at Ajinomoto Foods North America: To Make Everyday Eating a Happy Experience. We do this by:

  • Supporting Well-being, both in peace of mind and ingredients for a healthy body, without sacrificing taste.
  • Contributing to Food Culture, by creating pleasing and unique combinations, easy preparations, and foods for diverse occasions like snacking, family dining, and celebrations.
  • Delivering to the Highest Standards, with a united team, the right tools, open communication, and alignment to always reach our goals.

Our Values

To achieve our purpose, we must be aligned in our values. These influence how we work, decide, and interact at Ajinomoto Foods North America:

  1. Sharing the joy of food: a meal shared is always more delicious.
  2. Quality is our first ingredient: we never stop learning or striving.
  3. One team, one spirit: only together, will we achieve our goals.
