From Japan to Asia. From Asia to the world.

As the world population of over 8 billion people is expected to grow even larger in the future, the current food supply system is causing various burdens. What is truly sustainable food that is friendly to the global environment and to the human body? This is not an issue that can be solved by a single technology or idea. Together with many like-minded people, we will create a new standard for food.

In the Asian region where we live, there are abundant biomass resources that benefit from our equatorial location, as well as culture, tradition, and wisdom nurtured over a long history. By combining these resources, technologies, and ideas, we will build an eco-system that will lead to solutions to the world's food challenges.
