People/Education Environment

NGK has taken part in the TABLE FOR TWO (TFT) program since September 2010. TFT is a volunteer activity to which employees can easily contribute. When an employee eats a healthy meal at a company cafeteria, we contribute the equivalent of one meal (20 yen) to children in Africa. The program is active at all NGK cafeterias (eight cafeterias in four areas).

In addition, NGK Yu-Service, NGK Metex, and NGK Fine Molds in the NGK Group participate in the TABLE FOR TWO program through on-site vending machines.
