Morinaga Angel School:

Hands-on learning programs for the future
of our children

In the age of the internet and advancements in technology, children tend to get caught up in the virtual world with little opportunity to experience things firsthand. Morinaga Angel School offers programs for children ages 0 to 18, based on their level of development, that offer real-life problem-solving situations that require thought and cooperation.

  • 1 Choco for 1 Smile

    You can bring a smile to someone every time you buy a chocolate. A portion of our profits are used toward educational programs in countries like Ghana, where cacao beans are produced. In addition to our contributions throughout the year, 1 yen per chocolate sold is donated during designated months.

  • Angel Wings Project

    For the future of children in Japan. During specific months, annual contributions are given to partner organizations who support children.

  • Joint programs with non-affiliate companies through the Angel Smile Project

    As part of our efforts to encourage other businesses to participate in our CSR activities, proceeds from our licensing business are used to provide educational and training programs. Businesses in food-related industries pay Morinaga a fee for the rights to use the "tenshi" or "angel" trademark with their products. These logos are registered under their own copyright to differentiate them from original Morinaga products.

  • Participation in WCF: World Cocoa Foundation

    As a member of WCF, we actively participate in programs that provide technical and educational guidance, as well as monitor child labor abuse in cacao-producing countries through WCF’s programs. *WCF: an organization that encourages responsible, sustainable cacao farming through education, financial support and social development.
