Originally called Lotte Co., Ltd, the company has grown from selling chewing gum to children in post-war Japan to becoming a major multinational corporation.


The source of the company's name is neither Korean nor Japanese, or even Chinese, but German. Shin Kyuk-ho was impressed with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther and named his newly founded company Lotte after the character Charlotte in the novel. Lotte's current marketing slogan in Japan is "The sweetheart of your mouth, Lotte" .
