Kikkoman Foods Inc., a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Kikkoman Corp., announced Friday two separate donations to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, totaling $5 million.

The Kikkoman Foods, Inc. Foundation will donate $3 million to UW-Madison’s College of Agricultural & Life Sciences and $2 million to UW-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Science.

The announcement was made as part of Kikkoman’s 50th anniversary celebration of the opening of its plant in Walworth. The Walworth plant is now the highest-producing soy sauce facility in the world. Both donations support research that will help protect the resources that initially attracted Kikkoman to Wisconsin, according to Friday’s announcement.
