KAMEDA’s Social Activities
Developing activities that are based in local
communities and linked to the future
We have supported the Albirex Niigata professional soccer club as a uniform sponsor since 1996. Stemming from the desire to give youngsters the chance to experience the power, excitement, and passion of sports, we have been working with Albirex Niigata to invite local children to see home games as part of our work to support local communities. In addition, we organize factory tours for local elementary schools to help with food education. We also make school visits to explain to students how rice crackers are made. We are expanding our projects to create a better future for local communities and children.
Supporting a range of working styles and women's
participation and advancement in the workplace
In 2015, we introduced “Happy Return System” (a retirement reinstatement registration system) to support a variety of working styles tailored to match a person’s stage in life. In 2017, we obtained Eruboshi Certification for being an outstanding company in terms of the efforts being made to promote activities and advancement for women in the workplace. In 2018, we received Kurumin Certification in recognition of our being a company that supports childcare. We continue to promote efforts that support utilization of our diverse workforce.
Promotion of cooperation between industry and academia
centering on the health field where needs are increasing
In 2014, we established an endowed course on metabolism and clinical nutrition at Niigata University Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences to assist in the study and training of diet therapy for lifestyle diseases and chronic kidney diseases. In 2017, we concluded a collaborative agreement with Niigata University to promote joint research. We aim to contribute not only to the area of foods but also to the fields of health, medicine, and beauty by incorporating the added value of rice-related materials, including plant lactobacillus.
Delivering safe and dependable products through
reliable sanitation management
KAMEDA SEIKA operates four factories in Niigata Prefecture. All of them have obtained Food Safety System Certification FSSC 22000 for their food safety management systems. By constantly improving our management systems, we are striving to achieve safe, dependable, and high-quality rice cracker manufacturing that meets our customers’ expectations.
