Educational and interactive online travel factory – Manila Bulletin
Going on field trips or educational tours is one of the most exciting ways to learn. Prior to the pandemic, food factory tours were widely used as a means for interactive learning for students seeking to be part of the industry. To cope with this activity, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) is bringing the factory to the online launch of The Ajinomoto Virtual Experience: Be More, at this time not only targeting students but homeowners as well. Aside from a detailed tour around the Ajinomoto factory, the virtual space is also packed with kitchen tips and games that everyone will enjoy.

Beyond sharing what we do, the tour has become a way for us to teach about food safety and proper nutrition, as well as share our advocacy on environmental sustainability, ”said Roann Co., APC’s General Manager of Marketing and Public Relations. “Now that we’re bringing it online, we’re excited to reach not only those from NCR but students and homemakers across the country who are empowering them to become more knowledgeable and responsible members of the community.”
