Talk Show on “Health and Food Sustainability – Future Food and Functional Food” “Sharing Experience of Working at Japanese Food Company” in collaboration with Kasetsart University 2023

11 August 2023
Faculty of Agro-Industry, Kasetsart University

The 1st Talk Show in Partnership with Kasetsart University (KU) was successfully organized on August 11 at the Faculty of Agro-industry. The topic of the Talk Show was carefully selected through consultation between Kasetsart University and the Project, focusing on Functional Food—an emerging area of interest in both Japan and Thailand. The event also included insights into the experience of working in a Japanese Company. The discussion was structured into two consecutive sessions. The first session delved into ‘Future Food and Functional Food,’ featuring topics such as (1) Thailand’s Insect Protein, (2) Initiatives for Health Promotion through the Development of Functional Foods in Japan, and (3) Sustainable Ingredients: Tasty and Healthy with Low Environmental Impact, particularly focusing on plant-based options. This was followed by the second session, which included a sharing segment on the experiences of Thai staff working in Japanese Companies in both Thailand and Japan.
