What is the background of the co-creation program?
In recent years, the values that people seek in food have become increasingly diverse, including good taste, health, environmental friendliness, and a sustainable future. Our mission is to create new "food" to meet various needs that have not been found in the past, and to realize healthy living and a sustainable future.
The program will call for a variety of ideas on the three themes of "developing new markets," "creating new 'food' that enriches the mind and body," and "solving social issues through food.

What we want to achieve with the Co-Creation Program
1. enjoy personal growth. Achieving Well-Being through Learning
Nissui has 59 manufacturing bases (36 in Japan and 23 overseas) related to each of its businesses, and has established logistics that can handle all temperature zones. Our wish is to create synergy between the two companies by introducing new technologies and business models in any part of the value chain from raw materials, processing and cooking, distribution, to the final consumer, and to develop new markets that Nissui has never been in before.
We look forward to brushing up Nissui's product line and entering new markets with technologies and business models related to raw materials, production, processing and preparation, food delivery, sales, safety and quality control, alternative foods, nutrition and health!

2. providing "food" that enriches the mind and body
While "food" has nutritional aspects such as health maintenance and disease prevention, it also has the aspect of contributing to the spiritual enrichment and satisfaction of the people who eat it. Eating well can also lead to the formation of human relationships and communication, as well as enhance quality of life and social skills.
Therefore, we would like to initiate an initiative focused on sensory value.
This initiative aims to ensure that food contributes to the enrichment of the soul by providing the pleasure, excitement, and empathy of eating, in addition to the healthful aspects that food can bring. This initiative requires knowledge from a variety of fields, including sensory design, the science of deliciousness, and user experience. We invite you to join us in our challenge to provide "food" that enriches the mind and body through the pursuit of sensory value!

3. resolution of social issues related to "food
Nissui aims to be a corporate group that continues to be needed by society by working together with stakeholders to solve social issues. Currently, we are working to solve various social issues related to food, such as food loss reduction, sustainable use of resources, transparency in the value chain, and plastic reduction.
We are looking for collaborators who are enthusiastic about working together with Nissui to realize a sustainable future!
