Since March 2018, Hachioji General Plant has been running its Table For Two campaign. In the campaign, when employees purchase certain set meals or foods, a 20 yen donation is made, which, through an NPO organization, is then used to provide school meals to children in developing countries. At the Hachioji General Plant, we offer a Table For Two menu once a week, designating a fish dish rich in healthy EPA and DHA.
In addition, a Table For Two vending machine has also been installed which allows the user to make a donation with every purchase of a beverage, providing plant employees with the opportunity to easily make social contributions. In fiscal 2021, a total of 94,060 yen was given as donations.
Nissui is proud to announce its endorsement and support for the first time of the FY2021 ‘Onigiri Action 2021’ campaign. ‘Onigiri Action’ is an initiative in which people post photos of onigiri (rice balls) on SNS or the campaign website with the hashtag #OnigiriAction. For every photo posted, sponsoring companies donate the equivalent of five school lunches to children in need in various parts of Asia and Africa via TFT. The campaign began in 2015 to commemorate World Food Day (October 16), a day set aside by the United Nations for people around the world to think about food and food-related challenges. The Onigiri Action 2021 campaign has seen a total of 273,876 photos collected and 1,397,795 school lunches delivered to children in Africa and Asia.
From October 5, 2021, to November 5, 2021, Nissui conducted the “Onigiri Action Present Campaign with Yaki Onio,” featuring mascot character, Yaki Onio. A special website was set up to disseminate information on the campaign. In conjunction with this, Nissui Group employees planned and participated in special events which were publicized on Nissui’s SNS accounts to promote Onigiri Action, both within and outside the company. A total of 3,962 photos were collected through the Present Campaign and the Nissui Group’s events.
