Inside the factory, producers wear gloves, masks and protective combination, as is typically found in chemical plants.

Crops can be contaminated either by dust, or by insects or by air. In this sterile environment, no pesticide is needed. Japanese consumers can eat the vegetables on sale in early in safety and without washing.
