On Monday, February 6, and Tuesday 7, 2012, two ANDO Momofuku Honor Prize recipients, seven ANDO Momofuku Award recipients and two Ritsumeikan University ANDO Momofuku Award recipients visited the NISSIN FOODS Group Head Office in Tokyo.
During their stay the group visited the “Cup-noodle Museum” and learnt about the achievements of Honorary Dr. ANDO Momofuku, the founder of the NISSIN FOODS Group, including the revolution he started in global food trends through his invention of the world’s first instant noodles. The group also experienced how chicken noodles are made and met with the President of NISSIN FOODS Holdings Co., Ltd., Mr. ANDO Koki, at the NISSIN FOODS Holdings Head Office, Tokyo.
Recipient of the ANDO Momofuku Honor Prize, ONIZUKA Ryosuke (APS4, Japan) said, “The eminent words of Dr. ANDO on display at the museum, ‘creativity inspired from our daily life’, left a great impression on me. At the same time, I could identify with Dr. ANDO and the importance of facing our daily challenges with a flexible attitude. As a recipient of this award, I hope that I can meet his expectations and make a positive contribution to society”.
