Our lives depend on preserving the blessings of our soil.

Good Soil Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter as GSG) has been creating perfect soil that can contribute to create products.

In collaboration with GSG, we are conducting the following research, in order to clarify the reason and mechanism that the soil of the Waki-farm, which is particular about soil preparation using vegetable compost, produces safe, secure and healthy food.

  1. Explaining why our "soil" is good for produce by analyzing its components and existing microorganisms.
  2. Explaining the reasons products from our "soil" are delicious and contribute to better health by analyzing them using metabolomic analysis.
  3. Explaining why processed food made from the produce are delicious and good for health by metabolomic analysis.

Based on the results, we have found out that our products contain ingredients that can contribute to maintain one's health and promote anti-aging. In addition, it is now clear that these contain minerals that are effective against heatstroke.

We will continue to address environmental problems including global warming and explain the scientific behind the processed food that is delicious but also healthy.
