Hadronic interactions of very high energy cosmic rays have been studied in various aspects of motivation. In recent decades, mainly motivated by air shower experiments, modelling of very high energy cosmic ray interactions have been greatly improved together with new data obtained from high energy colliders such as the LHC. Regarding recent rapid progress of multi-messenger astronomy, a precise knowledge on secondary particle production by cosmic rays at very high energy is largely indispensable. This would give us a new insight and new motivation to study minimum bias hadronic interactions of very high energy cosmic rays.
