TOKYO -- Japanese food service company Leoc is expanding a training program in Southeast Asia to help workers learn skills needed to acquire visas to Japan.

Leoc, part of the Onodera group, serves hospitals, schools, nursing homes and office cafeterias. The hope is to bring trained staff to work in its own kitchens under Japan's visa program designed to help industries experiencing a labor crunch.
