About this site
"Power of Plant"Hello everyone!
What do you think of when you hear the word "Power of Plant"?
In this site, we define the power that plants themselves originally possess as "Power of Plant".
Through our research on food loss, we learned that most of the food loss is vegetables, and we have been thinking how to use up the power of these plants that would otherwise be discarded.
I would like to look at the current situation of food loss together with you. We would like to let everyone know food loss, which is becoming a problem not only in Japan but also in the world.
