About the Seed & Farm Solution Department
Beginning with our sweet corn “Mirai” and “Picnic Corn” (said to have a fresh sweetness on par with fruit), we have been using our unique insights to introduce a new food culture to the Japanese dinner table with our “Sicilian Rouge” tomato as well as asparagus.
Innovative breakthroughs which increase value for consumers are the building blocks of the future.
Based on the Mirai series, which has been well-received for its high sugar content, refreshing sweetness, and skinless texture, we are developing sweetcorn varieties for subtropical regions such as Southeast Asia.
Based on our experiences in the various climates, soil types, and cultivation methods in Japan, spanning from northern Hokkaido to southern Kyushu, we are developing asparagus varieties and cultivation techniques for overseas markets.
3. Mauro's Mediterranean Tomatoes
Mauro's Mediterranean Tomatoes created a new market for tomatoes in Japan with a focus on flavor. Based on "tomatoes for cooking" and "colorful mini-tomatoes". We are developing new varieties that will create new markets overseas.
