FY2022 Shokuiku Activities Summary
Resuming face-to-face tours at Mayo Terrace-Challenging new
initiatives after the corona disaster-

Kewpie Corporation (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO: Mitsuru Takamiya, hereinafter referred to as Kewpie) will summarize the food education activities conducted in fiscal 2022 (December 2021-November 2022). In 2022, the corona crisis continued, but we resumed face-to-face activities and further enhanced online content, resulting in a significant increase in the number of events held compared to 2021. Mayo Terrace, a tour facility in Chofu City, Tokyo, has resumed accepting face-to-face tours from July 2022 with a reduced number of people. If the organizers wished for on-site lectures and lectures, they were held face-to-face, and we were able to obtain a place for communication where we could meet customers directly.
As a new initiative, we held a factory tour and an event at Mayo Terrace where employees involved in quality assurance taught us how to read food labels. In addition, as a visiting class at schools, we held an “SDGs class” to convey what the Kewpie Group is working on as a corporate responsibility. Due to the popularity of the “SDGs classroom,” we aim to start recruiting as a new visiting class in 2023. The “Dietary Life Academy” on the Kewpie official website has released 5 new contents, making a total of 14 contents. The “Dietary Academy” was established in July 2021 with the aim of enabling children who will create the future to independently learn, think, and make decisions about their eating habits. It’s been a year since I’ve challenged various initiatives in the year of the year.
In addition, in June 2022, in June 2022, we received the highest award, the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award, in the 6th Shokuiku Activity Awards, Educators and Businesses Category [Corporate Category]. *1.
