Measures against Regional Disasters (Hachioji Area)

Participation in the Kitanomachi Emergency Drill

On October 27, 2019, the Hachioji General Plant participated in the emergency drill conducted by Kitanomachi, Hachioji. The Plant displayed and distributed papers that summarized the maps of the local evacuation areas and the flooding hazard maps, as well as introducing and distributing Nissui’s fish sausages as part of emergency stockpiles.
In 2019, the Asa River, which flows through Kitanomachi, reached flooding levels, due to a large typhoon making landfall, which has prompted many participants to take a look at the papers, especially the flooding hazard map. The Plant was also able to communicate to the residents of the area that fish sausage could be kept for approximately four months at room temperature and could be used as a source of high-quality protein in emergencies.

Providing Well Water During Emergencies

There is a deep well on the premises where the Hachioji General Plant, and the Group companies, Chilldy Co., Ltd. and the Hachioji Office of Carry Net Co., Ltd. are located. The water from the well, under strict daily water quality supervision, is being used in the plants and the offices.
The Hachioji General Plant, in preparation for water supply stoppages due to various causes including natural disasters, has made an arrangement to offer this well water as drinking water, by entering into the “Disaster Control Measure-related Agreement” with the City of Hachioji. This arrangement is part of Nissui’s regional contribution activities borne from the desire to be of service to the people living in the same community in emergency situations as well as in ordinary times.

Operation of an Antenna Shop to Bring Safe and Reliable Salmon to Local Residents

The Nissui Group company, Salmones Antártica S.A.(SA), is engaged in the business of farming, processing, and selling salmon in Chile. While salmon aquaculture is a thriving business on Isla de Chiloé, in the Los Lagos Region, where SA is headquartered, the high-quality salmon products are almost all exported overseas, and generally on the Isla de Chiloé, the local resident can only get their hands on the substandard products or products whose sources are questionable.
In 2013, the year in which SA commemorated the 25th anniversary of becoming a member of the Nissui Group, it opened an antenna shop in Castro, the center of the Isla de Chiloé, to sell its safe and reliable salmon products. The antenna shop became extremely popular resulting in strong sales and providing the opportunity for the local residents to get to know the high-quality products of SA. In response to its popularity in Castro, SA decided to open a second shop in Santiago, the capital of Chile in November 2019. By opening a shop in Santiago, SA has been able to bring its salmon products to an even greater number of people.
SA, a pioneer in salmon farming in Chile, has been selling the FIVE STAR brand products to its customers around the world but going forward it also hopes to become a company that is loved by its local residents.

The Global Fisheries Scholarship Program

Since 2002, we have been contributing to the development of New Zealand’s fishery industry by inviting youths from the indigenous Maori population to in-house trainings in Japan.
One or two trainees are received each year for one-year training in fisheries, aquaculture, processing, marketing and distribution at Nissui Group business locations in Japan. The training program also focuses on understanding Japanese culture and consumer's needs as well as Japanese language study. After completing training, they make use of what they learned in fisheries and other related industries in New Zealand.

Supporting the Indigenous People of the Region (Salmones Antártica S.A.)

The feed plant of the Nissui Group company, Salmones Antártica S.A.(“SA”), is located in Los Ángeles in the State of Bio-Bio. Many indigenous people live in the Trapa Trapa Region near the Andes mountain range in the same State. The village of Ralco in this region is home to over 70 such households where the people in winter are completely isolated from the rest of the world for months due to the snow. SA donates food to these households, as a way of supporting the livelihood of the people faced with mobility difficulties. SA is involved in an activity to support and protect the indigenous people.
