Similarly, when the Olympics community and athletes are facing the impact of the epidemic, it is time for us to unite our forces to support them. While affirming their efforts and achievements, Nissin Foods also appeals to the public to cheer for the Hong Kong teams so that they could strive for good results in the Tokyo Olympics."
The goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practiced without discrimination of any kind, while promoting friendship, solidarity and fair play. This, together with Nissin's corporate slogan of "HUNGRY to WIN" striving for innovation in the global food industry, Nissin Foods is no stranger to sports development sponsorship in Hong Kong, and in particular, bolstering the Junior Tennis development through partnering with the Hong Kong Tennis Association.
