Ryukyu Shimpo – Okinawa’s largest plant factory to be built in Ogimi

In October, the largest plant factory in Okinawa, that could produce 800,000 lettuce leaves per year, will start operating in Ogimi Village. On August 7, Ogimi Farm, which manages the factory, held a press conference to explain the establishment at a rental incubation factory at the Yui no Hama, a reclaimed area of Shioya Bay in Ogimi.

Using the mineral-rich spring water of Ogimi Village, they will cultivate plants hydroponically or in planters without chemical fertilizer. Ogimi Farm will employ 15 full-time and part-time employees, they intend to hire 11 people with disabilities.

Comment: Papaya would be better than lettuce if you ask me. Regardless, We're always happy to support the local farmer!
