Especially, we also actively participate the launch of new development projects for the promotion of agriculture in rural areas and regions in needed of development assistance of the world. At present, We are developing a new overseas support project using our spawn and cultivation technology in several countries.

In the R & D department, we not only strive to preserve the strains to ensure the stability of the spawn varieties but also develop highly yielding varieties contributing to the profitability of mushroom growers. Furthermore, we hope that growers will enjoy cultivating mushrooms with satisfaction due to our highly productive spawn.

For the cultivation of shiitake mushrooms, we use broad-leaved trees such as oak, which is 15 to 20 years old. In the felled forest, new shoots sprout from the stump. They grow vigorously again while actively absorbing CO2. Forests in good condition are thus maintained by recycling. By growing and consuming log shiitake mushrooms, we contribute to protecting forests and preventing global warming.
