The SUGI Pharmacy Group will continue to be a pharmacy. That is the pride of both the Group and all its employees.

Since its foundation, the SUGI Pharmacy Group has worked to contribute to local communities through sales of pharmaceuticals, health food products, cosmetics, and daily necessities and prescription dispensing. It has now become a drugstore chain with 1,565 group stores and 34,619 employees and unwaveringly continues to work on further enhancement of corporate value and to help local communities to achieve sustainable growth, with a pride on always being a pharmacy.
The Group’s first store listened attentively to the voices of each customer who visited the store and became prosperous as a kind family pharmacy for its sincere and kind customer services.
Since then, kindness, honesty, and trust have been our corporate watchwords to guide our growth.
Sincerity, which is a spirit of altruism, and the spirit of the corporate watchwords that in order to be honest and to gain trust, we need always to be kind, are indicated in our management philosophy as basic values, which are deeply understood and practiced by all employees of the SUGI Pharmacy Group.
Our actions driven by the spirit of our corporate watchwords that started from kindness and continues through today and beyond without any change, as well as sincerity embedded in our management philosophy, will fortify the foundations of our business and human resources and will lead to the growth of the SUGI Pharmacy Group and the happiness of its employees through the smiles, joy, and excitement of its customers.
