TOKYO —
Major Japanese “gyudon” (beef bowl) chain Yoshinoya said Tuesday it would grow rice and vegetables in Fukushima Prefecture.
Operator Yoshinoya Holdings said it had set up a joint venture with local farmers—called Yoshinoya Farm Fukushima—to grow rice, onions and cabbages in a 4.3-hectare field in Shirakawa, 80 kilometers from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
It will also build a facility to process vegetables for use in Yoshinoya restaurants across the nation, the firm said, adding strict radiation screening measures will be put in place.
