Tokushima Co-op holds a food business field seminar for students of Shikoku University Junior College


On October 12, a 100-minute business seminar on food field was held at Co-op Kitajima store of Tokushima Co-op for eight students (including two Vietnamese and one Chinese student) by Professors SAKAMOTO Hiroshi and NISHIBORI Naoyoshi of the Department of Food and Nutrition, Shikoku University Junior College. This is the first seminar held based on the comprehensive collaborative agreement signed between Shikoku University, Shikoku University Junior College, and Tokushima Co-op on February 8, 2022.
