- Relationships with local and regional Nikken Foods communities
- Together with Customers
As we manufacture products used in food industries, many consumers may be unfamiliar with the “Nikken” name. However, we strive for trust each day through our R&D, manufacturing, and sales activities.
Nikken has a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place to ensure swift restoration of operations in the event of a disaster, minimizing risk and customer inconvenience, and ensuring delivery of products trusted by consumers.
- Food defense
- Precautions are in place to prevent unauthorized entry to factory buildings, including a reinforced security system and fencing.
- Logistics management
- Enhanced safety through zoning and rack-type automated warehousing system
- Improving computing systems
- Implementation of backup system, uninterruptable power system, base isolation storage rack (host computer), and SAP system.
- Preparation of manuals
- Nikken has prepared various in-house manuals, including a disaster response handbook dealing with natural disasters, new strains of influenza, and nuclear accidents.
- Reinforcing quake-resistant buildings
- Nikken’s main factory is resistant to earthquakes measuring 6 on the Japanese seismic scale. Meanwhile, two facilities are being rebuilt and five facilities are being made more quake-resistant.
- Securing power and resources
- Nikken secures water, power, and gas to ensure business continuity in the event of a disaster.
Water: We have an onsite well and water purification facilities. This, together with our power generator, ensures ongoing business in the event of a disaster.
Power: Activation of our cogeneration system (1,000kw) covers most of the power needed for ongoing operations, with the remainder (about 700kw) purchased from a power company. Thus, operations could continue in the event of a disaster.
Gas: Our onsite LNG satellite (natural gas distribution facility) ensures a three-day supply, ready for activation in the event of an emergency.
