TOKYO8 GLOBAL was established from, Taiyo Yuka. We have been committed to recycling and upcycling since our establishment in 1963. All of our businesses, based on the clear vision of our founder, have been working toward each goal of the SDGs even before the SDGs were proposed, and we found ourselves as one of the leading companies that respond to the demands of society with cutting-edge technologies. Coming from upcycling, our new product TOKYO8 will now take on the challenge of eradicating poverty (No Poverty), SDG 1.
Our goal is that, with TOKYO8 will, small scale farmer will be able to have higher productivity at a cost that they can afford. It will encourage farmers who have been self-sufficient in their small fields to secure a harvest for sale from the same area planted, and it will also create new jobs in the spread and distribution of TOKYO8. We are promoting the deployment of production plants in developing countries through franchising, with the aim of making the technology available to small farmers at an affordable price. We look into expanding the number of distributors who sell the locally reproduced TOKYO8 at low cost as micro-franchises, and this franchise structure will be set up in each village to improve agricultural productivity and create many jobs, sustainably contributing to poverty eradication.
Besides that, the TOKYO8 franchise and micro-franchise system will have a positive impact on various social issues in rural areas of developing countries, both directly and indirectly. We are convinced that it is a product of hope for the future, with reported results in all kinds of crops, whether soil or hydroponic, vegetables, pulses, or roots.
