First, we will start from the relatives of the story.
In our company, we ask you to half of the executives from outside the company. Both are a lawyer’s and certified public accountant’s crunchy young. On the other hand, I think somewhat unique even those of full-time officers. I President, I was Orimashita taught disaster psychology in the past 40 years the University, and the other alone inside directors of, in the press-born, the past few years, has served as a professor of the Department of Communication of certain Women’s University . The two are a little older, but curiosity is strong.
Active duty personnel, and our company is we are living as real estate leasing, just people either edge also had no Yukari. Sheer chance, and strange feeling. However, team work is excellent.
In such soon, the board of directors, which will be held in the month twice regular, and very ordinary of the Board of Directors, and brainstorming specific management meetings, has become to be done by nearly one times.
Topic of this place is, the tea that has been popular since ancient times to the Japanese, it was that or not incorporated as a new business. Now’s a Japanese tea café interesting of spear, catechin and that is included in the tea, sterilization force the component has, deodorant force, such as might somehow be commercialized as cosmetics and health food, it came out even outlandish opinion .
The first place of the notches, the young ace Y deputy general manager of the Tokyo investment development Co., Ltd., supposed to be was me talking hot the charm of tea is the feeling that “I want to go to see the tea” at the beginning, to be shared by everyoneIt is why was.
Through the Y’s, Sasaki president’s Shizuoka Prefecture Kakegawa Sasaki Tea Co., Ltd., I asked would like to show the tea plantations and tea processing. Since Sasaki president san who have met a kindly our hope, early morning of March certain day, Y deputy general manager and our four officers, a total of six T executive officer, has left the company in the microbus.
Sasaki Seicha is a tea company that boasts the seventh largest sales in Japan, 29 times of other Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award, and have won numerous international awards, of tea representing Japan which projects to mass both companyIt is.
