What's Pecan Nuts Project ?

We aim to regenerate agriculture and create regional revitalization in Rikuzentakata City in collaboration with three unions: ‘Salon de Royal’, Rikuzentakata city and Tokyo university.(Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Science).
To achieve that goal, we would grow domestic production and distribution of American well known pecan nuts which have high profitability and anti-aging effects.
