      "Our company primarily uses palm oil in the frying process during production. In recent years, various issues, such as rainforest deforestation for the development of farms, workers’ human rights, and CO2 emissions from peatlands, related to palm oil production have been highlighted. [...] our company has ensured the sustainable procurement of palm oil. Our company became a member of the RSPO to contribute to resolving these issues, and to promote and ensure the sustainable production and use of palm oil. By making progress through efforts aimed toward the sustainable production of palm oil, our company will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society."
