OUR BUSINESS

Beer

Located at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Gotemba, DHC’s Shizuoka brewery uses only 100% spring water filtered by the slopes of Mt. Fuji itself together with optimum malt and hops carefully sourced from around the world to brew beer. This uncompromising approach to ingredients, along with exacting temperature control and other quality measures, allows us to deliver the remarkably pure flavors our customers have come to expect.

Supporting assistance dogs as a CSR activity

DHC supports the activities of the Japan Supporting Dog Welfare Association, which, based on our philosophy of support by and for the public, is supported without government funding and through the goodwill of volunteers and companies. DHC has supported its service dog training program since April 2009, promoting access to service dogs for those who need them through various initiatives, including donation boxes set up in stores operated directly by DHC.
