Confectionary Education is a unique program run by Morinaga as part of our efforts to support children’s healthy growth. Through this program, we convey the important role of confectionaries in nutrition as well as spiritual fulfillment and communications among family members and friends. We also provide information about how to make good choices regarding confectionary consumption, appropriate consumption quantities depending on age and level of activity, and measures to prevent tooth decay.
Through factory tours, we let participants see and experience hands-on not only the fun and true pleasure of manufacturing, but also the measures to ensure food safety and security. We also provide opportunities for hands-on experience, conducting parent-child workshops using our products to create Handmade HI-CHEW —an experience that only a factory could provide.
Morinaga has Confectionary Factory Pavilions at KidZania Tokyo and KidZania Koshien, popular facilities where children can have work and social experiences while playing. Each child visiting these pavilions can make their own original HI-CHEW candy, learning through this experience not only the pleasure of manufacturing confectionaries but also knowledge of food sanitation and nutrition.
We conduct camps to nurture children’s lives on an uninhabited island in the Seto Inland Sea, where there is no electricity or water services.
On the stage of the Satoyama Angel Forest, we convey to participants wisdom for living and the importance of protecting the environment.
We provide support for children in Ghana and other cacao-producing countries to receive an education with peace of mind.
Seeing the confectionary production process, participants are able to gain a sense of the fun of manufacturing as well as the importance of safety and security measures.
