Description

Food Craft Japan has opened its operations center with hydroponic farm and cafe in a multi-story building in Kiyokawa.

Agriculture is a major source of the food that we need to survive. But agriculture is facing some serious problems: Abnormal weather, handing down of know-how due to lack of successors, natural disasters, distribution, domestic self-sufficiency rate, price competition, health damage, safety and security... What should future sustainable agriculture be like? Thinking about these things, we launched our hydroponic system as a bridge to next-generation agriculture.

The vegetables we eat every day go through various processes before being brought to the dining table. Many nutrients are lost in the process, and the vegetables come in contact with contaminants and bacteria. If there were a vegetable shop that could function like a convenience store in your town, you could enjoy freshly-picked vegetables immediately.

With our system, IoT technology verifies and manages indoor temperature, humidity, moisture, and other crop cultivation conditions. We are introducing indoor cultivation units that reuse space in office buildings with vacant floors, idle warehouses and factories.

Advantages to hydroponic farm produce:

  • Fast growing
  • Pesticide-free cultivation
  • No need to prepare soil
  • Stable production
  • Effortlessly grown
  • Take advantage of free space
  • Urban agriculture is possible
  • Can be harvested all year round
  • Very efficient use of water resources

      I toured the new Head Office in Kiyokawa. There was a little market, hydroponic farm, and cafe, Was able to actually taste the lettuce, some herbs, and enjoy a non-alcoholic mojito that was fantastic. It’s so intriguing to see such a clever and efficient way to make urban farming sustainable and affordable. Very cool!
