Wednesday, November 21, 2018 as many as 53 Sociology students who undertake Community Development and CSR courses visited PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka to understand the company’s implementation of CSR. In addition to that, students also made a direct visit to the community to observe the social impact the industry has made in accordance with its existence within the community.
During the visit, students were first introduced to the company by visiting Soyjoy’s factory. In the factory, students were educated on healthy living through games that students can collectively play with. From Soyjoy’s factory, the trip proceeded to Pocari Sweat’s factory. In the factory, students directly saw the production process and are also introduced to CSR programs that have been carried out by PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka. There are three pillars of CSR that are carried out, namely in the fields of education, health and environmental sustainability.
After the factory, the most awaited moment to continue the trip to Kejayan for a direct visit the community has arrived. Here, students directly go to Pacar Keling Hamlet which is the Ring 1 area of PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka. After the arrival, students were immediately greeted by Mr. Hasan as the Head of the Hamlet and several other village officials. Students then began to visit the villagers’ houses to conduct interviews with which their results will be used as materials for the research report.
