Call for collaboration proposals for Maneki Foods Co., Ltd., a business matching event will be held on June 20th for startups and existing companies. Themes include the World Expo, freezing factories, and SNS strategy.

……
On June 20th, ANCHOR KOBE (hereinafter referred to as Anchor), operated by Kobe Shimbun Co., Ltd., held an Anchor Kobe member day event “Maneki Foods Day” with Maneki Foods as the host company, with the theme of “Accelerating business through co-creation.” “It will be held. Maneki Foods is a company famous for “Ekisoba”, which is said to be Himeji’s soul food, but they are also developing creative businesses outside of the station area, such as opening a sushi roll shop in Ginza, Tokyo, and creating shumai bento boxes in collaboration with Kiyoken. It continues to expand. With the goal of “bringing BENTO to the world,” we are actively working on frozen bento boxes, and at the Osaka Expo, we have decided to open a store at a directly managed restaurant within the facility. Riding on this momentum, the company is looking for startups and companies to collaborate and co-create on a variety of themes such as frozen lunch boxes and the Osaka Expo.
