Aiding Towards the Eradication of Hunger
Supporting the Activities to Eradicate Hunger through JA WFP
According to the United Nations, a maximum of 8.11 million people around the world, suffer from hunger. In accordance with our founder’s philosophy, “Peace will come to the world when there is enough food,” the NISSIN FOODS Group actively supports the activities to eradicate hunger through the Japan Association for the World Food Programme (JAWFP), of which CEO Koki Ando serves as Chairman. The Group assigns a NISSIN FOODS HOLDINGS employee to serve on their permanent staff. The Group has raised awareness among employees and the general public about world hunger such as through donating a portion of the sales from products and participation in the charity event WFP Walk the World*. In fiscal 2021, approximately ¥32 million was donated to the United Nations World Food Programme, bringing cumulative donations since 2011 to approximately ¥382 million.
- *The event was cancelled in fiscal 2021 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
What is WFP?
Assisting 100 million people in around 80 countries each year, the World Food Programme (WFP) is the humanitarian organization fighting hunger worldwide, delivering food assistance in emergencies and times of conflict, and working with communities to improve nutrition and provide school meals. “WFP” is used here as a collective term for the United Nations organization “United Nations World Food Programme” and the accredited NPO “Japan Association for the World Food Program” that supports it.
Supporting Poverty through Product Donations
We are donating products to various facilities, including food banks, such as Second Harvest Japan. In fiscal 2021, due to the spread of COVID-19, products were donated to medical institutions as support for medical workers.
