CASE

Case of Fulfilling the
SDGs ‘Chan Chan Chan
Project’

100 persons x 2 types of
side dishes x 6 times (As of the end of December 2019)
1 NO POVERTY, 2 ZERO HUNGER, 3 GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING, 4 QUALITY EDUCATION

According to the results of domestic research and analysis for single-parent
households, it is difficult for them to take care of children and go to work due
to low income and negative social perceptions. In cooperation with CJ Welfare
Foundation, the company is running ‘Chan Chan Chan Project’ to distribute healthy
side dishes to single parent families to support their independence and self-reliance
and healthy growth of children.
Utilizing products of the company to make healthy and nutritious side dishes,
employees participate in the project to deliver the side dishes to single parent
families. In selecting the menu for the project, full competence of the company
was mobilized as the chefs working at the company decided the menu, considering
the aspects of storage and nutritious. In 2019, the project was carried out over 6
sessions; 2 kinds of side dishes were delivered to 100 unmarried single-parents
per session. CJ CheilJedang will diversify side dish menus and support more
households by expanding a range of beneficiary regions to establish this project as
a key social contribution activity with sincerity, not a one-off event.

8 DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH

CJ CheilJedang runs a project called ‘Happy Companion’, a shared-growth platform
that explores competitive SME suppliers. It supports SME suppliers with funds,
capacity and sales channels, and provides opportunities for sustainable growth,
thereby creating a healthy food industry ecosystem in Korea. To create shared
values, CJ CheilJedang grants SME suppliers opportunities for growth while
strengthening its product portfolio and sales. Mijung produces noodles and rice
cakes and has achieved growth through the ‘Happy Companion’ platform. The
company pioneered a new market beyond the existing one for low-priced rice
cake products and built competitiveness to produce sauces with its own capacity,
ensuring its market share and new revenue sources. As a successful win-win model
between an SME and a large company, the platform is expanding by supporting
the branding project for suppliers. In addition to supporting SME suppliers for their
sales increase, CJ CheilJedang also contributes to local communities by creating
quality jobs through the Naeil Chaeum (Brighter Future) Mutual Aid Program1).

companies and their employees for the longterm employment of core human resources.
