Corporate Philosophy

[Mission] TIROL, the company where smiles are for everyone

  • IMAGE

What does it take to create a great company, products and working environment? We believe it’s all about smiles. We pride ourselves on providing employees with a place where they can work with a smile, helping us create great products. Our products make customers smile, which in turn makes our employees smile. And these smiles spread among our families and valued clients. Smiling truly is infectious, and it is our mission to put a smile on the faces of everyone.

[Vision] ONE TIROL ONE SMILE ONE ASIA

IMAGE

All it takes to put a smile on someone’s face is a single piece of chocolate. What if we could spread these smiles beyond Japan and into the rest of Asia? Imagine it: a future where anyone can pop into a store in Asia and find TIROL!

President’s Message

Always fun at heart [President] Yuji Matsuo

It has been over a century since our company was founded, and more than 50 years have passed since products under the TIROL chocolate brand first went on sale. Many things have changed during our long history, and we will need to keep evolving in line with the times. But there is one thing we must never change. This is our sense of fun. This is the meaning behind our longstanding company policy of, "Brightening the world with fun sweets."

In 2017, I took over as the company’s 4th president, and in 2020 set out a new mission and vision for TIROL.
TIROL, the company where smiles are for everyone
ONE TIROL ONE SMILE ONE ASIA
Our employees who work hard every day and their supportive families.
Customers and valued clients who have continued to purchase our products for over a century. We have made all these people smile. My hope is that we can create even more smiles by reaching out to people across Asia. It is this ardent wish of mine that forms the basis of our new mission and vision.

We at TIROL will continue to pour our passion and smiles into exploring the limitless possibilities of chocolate, and will continue to approach our work as a labor of love.
