Grand Prize Received in Menu Division of Second TABLE FOR TWO General Election
The Grand Prize was received in the Menu Division by Aim Services Co., Ltd. and Isuzu Motors at the Second TABLE FOR TWO General Election, which was hosted by NPO TABLE FOR TWO International*1 at its TFT activities report meeting on July 7, 2016.
The "general elections" were held in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, and CSR representatives from the companies that have introduced the TFT Program*2 took part by voting in the Menu Division, and the PR Division, which uses public relations activities as the basis for granting the awards.
The Grand Prize-winning menu was the healthy set menu of "Miso yaki-onigiri with germinated brown rice" provided for the "Isuzu Itadakimasu ("Let's Eat!") with 3,000 People! Campaign"*3 held alongside World Food Day in October 2015. The dish won the most votes of the 35 entries in the Menu Division, and was awarded the Grand Prize.
