Interview with Morinaga America Foods, Inc.

We had the opportunity recently to sit down with Morinaga America Foods, Inc. and speak with President Toshiaki Fukunaga and GM of Engineering Lindsay Efland! Located in beautiful Mebane, NC, Morinaga America Foods produces and distributes the ever-popular and delicious HI-CHEW candy. Hear about Morinaga’s history, how Morinaga America Foods first came to Orange County, North Carolina, what separates HI-CHEW candy from all the rest, and their vision for the future. We’d also like to thank Morinaga America Foods for co-sponsoring the final film of the Fall 2021 “Global Film Series” from the Office of Global Engagement and NC State Libraries, showing the wonderful film “Weathering with You.” We welcomed 250 attendees, who left with fistfuls of HI-CHEW!
