About The Company
VEGHEET specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of vegetable sheet. I started making “VEGHEET” in 1998 when I came across a “vegetable sheet” developed by a Kumamoto seaweed company on the coast of Ariake Sea. I was convinced that this would surely benefit the world and decided to work on commercialization.
At that time, there was no manufacturing technology or know-how, and I approached universities all over the country to use the knowledge of experts, but everybody said it was impossible. I finally met a university professor in Nagasaki who was able to support this project.
One of the commitments of “VEGHEET” is to use “imperfect vegetables”.
By using imperfect vegetables that are discarded due to damages or different sizes, the burden on the environment can be reduced.
In addition to that, it will help farmers to get more income and to create new jobs, and improve the brand image of local agricultural products.
In 2016, VEGHEET won the Business Plan Contest Gran-Prix Award from the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and was praised for its contribution to environmental issues and regional revitalization.
