Organic JAS certification
Yusando has been preparing to acquire organic JAS certification while cultivating according to the principles and guidelines of Shumei Natural Farming, with the goal of exporting overseas since its establishment.
Professor Shigeru Yasuda of Kobe University, whom I met at a study session, recommended that I acquire certification, so I took a course at the Hyogo Organic Agriculture Research Association.
We were able to successfully pass the on-site inspection and received the long-awaited organic JAS certification from the Hyogo Organic Agriculture Research Association in July 2018.
Currently, we are applying for Shumei Natural Farming Certification, the most stringent certification in the world.
