-Special package product “Snow Country Maitake Kiwami”-
This initiative is a collaboration between the three parties with the aim of expanding the demand for mushrooms in order to help solve one of the social issues that young people are turning away from vegetables. As a background, due to differences in food culture, the consumption of maitake mushrooms in western Japan tends to be relatively low compared to eastern Japan. Kyoto Sangyo University’s Faculty of Business Administration Kazuaki Matsumoto’s seminar and Yukiguni Maitake teamed up, and Heiwado, which operates mainly in western Japan, cooperated to improve awareness of Maitake, increase the eating rate, and eventually solve social issues. In order to connect them, we decided to conduct industry-academia collaboration. Maitake mushrooms can be split by hand, so there is no need for a kitchen knife, and since almost 100% of the edible part can be used without waste, it is a product that matches the thinking of young people who avoid cooking and are conscious of food loss and
At Heiwado, our corporate philosophy is to be a company that continues to contribute to our customers and the local community, and we aim to be a community-based lifestyle comprehensive (creative) company. The basis of this is “community co-creation,” which is to create a bright, energetic, and healthy community by working together with the community to address the issues it faces. We believe that the “health of the community”, which revitalizes and makes society better, will lead to the growth of Heiwado and the realization of its philosophy. Based on this idea, Heiwado, which handles food, has various collaborations and events related to “community health” with “health”, “childcare”, and “elderly” as key themes.
Going forward, we will continue to promote local production for local consumption, food education activities, environmental conservation activities, and environmental learning for the sake of the health of the community, and actively contribute to the development and sustainability of rich and healthy communities. We will continue to. [About the content of the initiative]
