A factory of quality
The key to constantly delivering the harvested sweet potatoes while keeping them more delicious, is storing and aging technology.
First, the harvested sweet potatoes are cured for a set period of time in a high-temperature/high-humidity environment and are protected from various germs by closing the scratches on the surface.
By aging it in a constant temperature storage room, maintained at the optimal temperature and humidity, we can deliver high-quality, high-sugar sweet potatoes constantly year-round.
What is important to us is that we can always eat delicious sweet potatoes.
To that end, we have the largest dedicated constant-temperature storage warehouse for sweet potatoes in western Japan.
We also have a factory that can quickly and efficiently perform delivery processes such as sorting, bagging, and boxing sweet potatoes.
By doing so, we are able to deliver sweet potatoes to you at any time of the year, while maintaining quality and taste.
