For your peace of mind
We carry out radiation checks based on our own standard that can detect levels less than 1 becquerel per kilogram. We use a germanium semi-conductor detector to conduct measurements. Only rice that shows no levels of radiation is sent to the customer.
We also use a spectral survey meter to check levels in the fields and the warehouse.
So that we can be sure that Akita Komachi Rice is safe to eat, in addition to radiation checks, we also measure and analyze pesticide residue.
We carry out our quality control based on strict national standards, have established traceability, and have passed the requisite ISO 22000、ISO 14001 requirements.
By reusing rice bran (a by-product of rice production) as a fertilizer and putting it back in the ground to produce next year’s rice crop, we are practicing cyclical farming. Every year, we agree by contract how much rice to produce. This guarantees a stable supply of safe and delicious rice.
