Social Contributions through Food
Zensho Group contributes to society through food.
Zensho’s stores, plants, and distribution centers across the country serve as relief centers in times of disaster. When a disaster occurs, we distribute food, including gyudon , to local people and work to reopen damaged stores as quickly as possible. We have also set up donation boxes in our stores nationwide and donate relief funds to disaster-stricken areas and countries.
