Market Innovator

Born in 1974 in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture.
After spending 21 years as an auctioneer in the fresh produce market, Mr. Miyachi realized that the market was shrinking and production declining due to a reduction of the agricultural workforce. Suspecting an incoming crisis in the industry, he began a business to build up a marketing system “from production to dispatch.”

Using his extensive experience in the industry, he has established a system that enables anybody to grow and sell produce with high added value like a ripened professional.

Hoping to solve the problem at its roots, he created “profitable agriculture” with his own original smart-agriculture. The advanced technology incorporated has gathered attention not only from large corporations but also from the Japanese government and parties overseas.
