Ashitaba Grown by Organic Farming

In the cultivation of Ashitaba, we are committed to organic farming.
We faithfully follow the organic agricultural procedure and cultivate Ashitaba with time and effort. Our Ashitaba cultivation began in 1994 in Indonesia.  The ideal climate for Ashitaba cultivation is relatively cool in summer and warm in winter with high annual precipitation.  Ashitaba does not grow well in Indonesia’s tropical climate with strong sunshine, and, because of the weather, we faced continuous challenges in the beginning. The huge gap in precipitation between wet season and dry season was very difficult to deal with. We ended up cultivating a farm on highland at an altitude of 1000m, where it is relatively cooler throughout the year.  At the farmland, we finally acquired our own Ashitaba cultivation method best suitable for Indonesian weather.
No agricultural chemical is used at all, and every process of soil making, sowing, permanent planting and harvest is done by hand with great care.
Currently we have two farmlands and factories, one each in Surabaya in Eastern Java and Lombok Island.  Having these facilities enables us to provide Ashitaba materials of high quality consistently. We secure safety and quality of our product by thorough quality control in Japan as well as in Indonesia.
