Yoshinoya to grow rice and vegetables in Fukushima


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.
