Business Locations in Japan
  • NISSIN FOODS HOLDINGS CO., LTD. (Tokyo Head Office, Osaka Head Office, and “the WAVE” R&D center), and MYOJO FOODS CO., LTD. (Research Center). Only data on CO2 emissions and the Energy Consumption for FY2019 and beyond are included for the above-mentioned business locations.
