The Aisin Group supports TABLE FOR TWO International’s TABLE FOR TWO programs, which on the one hand support children in developing countries suffering from hunger and on the other hand prevent lifestyle-related diseases among employees. Since 2009, the group has been collecting ¥20 per healthy, low-calorie meal eaten by an employee (¥10 from the employee, ¥5 from the company, and ¥5 from the cafeteria). The amount has been donated for children in developing countries to afford one school meal.
In fiscal 2022, the group provided 200,000 meals, ranking first among the 370 companies participating in the Cafeteria/Vending Machine Program of TABLE FOR TWO. Consequently, the Aisin Group has ranked first in the number of donated meals for four consecutive years and has received the Platinum Partner certificate of gratitude for ten consecutive years.
Aisin will continue to promote the health of each employee and help build a sustainable society through socially responsible activities.
