The history of the Kirin Group dates back to 1907, when the Kirin Brewery Company was founded and took over the business of the Japan Brewery Co., Ltd., which had been established in Yamate, Yokohama. Since that time, the Group has made sustained progress with a focus on offering products with higher added value, implementing business diversification and globalization, and enhancing management.
Moving forward, the Group will continue to value the pursuit of innovation, a customer orientation, and a focus on quality, which have been a part of the Group's corporate DNA since its founding. Kirin's resilience enables the Group to respond to evolving markets and customer needs and is a key strength in Kirin's endeavors to increase corporate value.
