Hearting “Children’s Future Food”
All the Time

President Midori Ogino
One day, after breast-feeding my eldest daughter in September 2011, she suddenly suffered with eczema and constipation for more than 10 days. I could not figure out other causes except our daily diets and I suddenly then realized the meaning of "YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT”. After reflection, I reviewed, reassessed and tried to inspect eating habits around with a thought of “Would it be possible for us to easily and comfortably buy the right food for our children which they feel good to eat?" As a result, under the assistance of the pastry class ran by my mother, I opened the handmade pastry shop of "BROWN SUGAR 1ST." based on a principle of “Would I Let My Children Eat Them” in strict selection of food ingredient. It was the time of four months after the birth of my daughter.
What is ORGANIC?
I do not think it is just a matter of without using pesticides or with certified labeling. The Organic considered by the Company is a kind of idea or choice to carry out organic link and circulation. Through the thought of “What are left?” and “What to inherit?” as spindle, the Company has been thinking and striving to open up career under the objective of letting manufacturers, distributors, buyers, gift presenters, consumers all get happiness through our Company products.

Our Company is an organic food company based on the principles of "Would I let my children eat them? We check food ingredients with strict selection standards”. While manufacturing and selling foods that without add any chemical additives, we also continuously think about what kind of diet should be offered to children`s health in the future
We are constantly thinking about the `safe food` for our end users and making the greatest efforts on "food security".
However, President. Ogino, who founded the Company as an identity of mother, has noted that there are two fundamental contradictions in the concept of "food safety" during the course of our Company activities.
The first one is the social requirement of the "food safety = stable supply and zero risk." In order to meet the needs of such consumers, food companies have continuous put efforts in innovative technology, research, and equipment investment. As a result, in order to stabilize supply and prevent shortage of commodity, chemicals, pesticides, genetic modification are often carried out to increase harvest along with the use of additives as well as complete sterilization and disinfection to avoid food poisoning. In addition, to avoid mixing with bacteria and foreign bodies, the manual labor is also replaced by mechanization in order to achieve the goal of zero risk.
The second one is "food safety = organic and natural." Recently, when it comes to the "safety of food", many people seem to be shifting from their organic concerns to this. In order to meet the needs of such consumers, food companies and producers are constantly striving to reduce pesticides or additives, with the aim of without being chemically adjusted or refined. As a result, the shelf life has become shortened and the supply has become unstable due to factors such as weather, and the price is also getting higher, despite that there is lower risk of additives or pesticides.
In the present situation, the "food safety" concept demanded by many customers seems to be with two fundamental contradictions which require purchasing cheap foods with the nature of long-term, non-moldy stability as well as of without containing pesticides to maintain good health. Under such circumstance, the question is, to what extent can food companies meet such needs?
The narratives made by the Company in here has no intention to criticize the public , but hopes to share the idea of "What is the" safe food "for which you require” in order to stir up some ripples. We are looking forward to exploring and discussing "a matter of course" or "questioning" related to this type of diet, so as to develop our business toward a rich future
