Social Contributions

Social Contribution Strategy

Since the establishment of the industry’s first dedicated social contribution department in 1999, CJ CheilJedang has consistently engaged in social contribution activities particularly in areas that require social attention and in where in can excel most. We conducts integrated social contribution activities that focus on creating core values related to ‘wellness and safety’, and ‘sustainable environment’. Through initiatives such as the Food Bank donations, which started in 1999, as well as various food sharing programs and volunteer activities by employees, the company contributes to the development of local communities

Major Activity

Health and Safety

Hope Food Pack

The Hope Food Pack program is aimed at contributing to the health and wellness of future generations by providing food packages and supporting healthy lifestyle habits for vulnerable populations. CJ CheilJedang has been providing food packages to 2,000 children in 70 nationwide Child Welfare Centers since 2020 as part of this initiative.

CJ CheilJedang Sharing Refrigerator

CJ CheilJedang Sharing Refrigerator is a food support program for young individuals living alone, in collaboration with the city of Seoul and the Youth Center Orang. This initiative aims to improve the dietary habits of economically and emotionally challenged young individuals through food package assistance. It encourages the practice of value-based consumption of food, and simultaneously contributes to the natural circulation of waste, perception enhancement through waste collection, and other opportunities for development.

Sustainable Environment

Hetbahn, Our containers to save the Earth

CJ CheilJedang is conducting the ‘Recycling of Hetbahn Container Collection Campaign,' where recyclable yet discarded Hetbahn containers are directly collected and transformed into valuable resources. The collected Hetbahn containers undergo separation and cleaning at local self-sufficiency centers before being recycled through material processing. This process not only contributes to recycling but also provides job opportunities and revenue for self-sufficiency centers.

‘Adopt a Beach’ to take care
of beaches like our pets

CJ CheilJedang, in partnership with the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, is running a program that treats adopted beaches as if they were pets. We aim to foster continuous initiatives in marine environmental cleanup and the preservation of marine ecosystems through activities like cleaning up marine litter.

Activities for the community

Support for the disabled
to be self-reliant Goodwill Store

CJ CheilJedang donates food items to the 'Milal Welfare Foundation Goodwill Store,' where products donated by individuals and businesses are sold to generate income for providing jobs and salaries to employees with disabilities. This initiative not only offers sustained employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities but also contributes to reshaping perceptions around the value of soon-to-expire food items. Additionally, Goodwill Store allocates 1% of the sales revenue from CJ CheilJedang's donated products to support the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), contributing to the global effort to address the issue of Zero Hunger.

Food assistance for disaster relief

CJ CheilJedang provides emergency relief food composed of CJ CheilJedang products to help individuals facing difficulties due to disasters and emergencies have stable meals. The company has established an emergency support system in collaboration with the Disaster Relief Association to swiftly deliver aid to affected areas. In times of disasters such as concentrated heavy rainfall and wildfires, CJ CheilJedang offers emergency relief food to evacuees in need.
