business model


We are contributing to the industrialization of corn grain.
One of the main reasons for this is that Japan is dependent on foreign countries for its feed supply.

Japan imports about 12 million tons of corn grain for feed alone annually, and domestic production of this feed would greatly contribute to improving self-sufficiency. In a time of unstable international relations, extreme dependence on foreign countries for the production of major grains is a risk from a security perspective.

The production of domestically-produced corn grain can contribute to food security as a commodity that solves various problems in domestic agriculture.


In addition, we are now innovating with rice paddy fields. Transforming under-utilized rice paddies into sites for corn grain production is a core tactic for maximizing profitability for matters of national interest and efficient utilization of cultivation area. We expect a great opportunity to increase the corn grain market for feeding domestic livestock as well as supplying domestic corn grain to other industries like Breweries and Snack Foods.

Our ultimate goal is facilitating agricultural innovation by introducing cutting edge technology as well as advanced tools and materials which we have discovered across the globe. While we have incessantly strived to create new value in the market. Our work should be innovative, leading, and serviceable to producers.
