The background story of my Entrepreneurship
Before I started my business in 2010, Hakodate was still in the midst of a recession due to the collapse of bubble economy, and the local economy was gradually declining due to a depopulation and aging society.
I wanted to increase the vitality of the people, businesses, and local environment that were losing their vitality.
In order to increase vitality, I decided to tackle on one of the problems that Hakodate was facing, which was the lack of local products that could represent Hakodate region. I was determined to search for new value in products to replace the marine products which was the core industry of Hakodate, as demand decreased. By creating new value-added Hakodate souvenirs that are beneficial for the body and give a sense of well-being through eating, and communicating the value of the region to all of Hokkaido, the rest of Japan, and lastly, the world. Through increasing the number of satisfied customers, we hope to energize local economy and then people of the world and therefore energizing the local economy and the people of the world with Kadou Foods Co.
