Disabled People Find Careers as Chocolatiers

Since 2014 we have been supporting product planning and development for luxury chocolates made by disabled people through a tie-up with a famous chocolatier. Because luxury chocolates sell at a higher price, do not require extensive production facilities, and are well-suited to disabled workers who are willing to take the time and care needed to produce them, this business can create employment, generate stable incomes, and increase wages.

Example

Currently, product planning, development, and sales under the brand name QUON chocolate are taking place in 17 locations in Japan. Thanks to these efforts brand recognition among consumers is on the rise and retail operations are expanding, including sales at well-known department stores.
