Japanese Convenience Store to Set up LED-equipped Indoor Farm in Tokyo for Fresh Salads Supplies

Seven-Eleven Japan will grow vegetables for its own salads products sold at convenience stores by establishing a plant factory in Tokyo, reported Nikkei Asian Review. Seven-Eleven is the largest convenience store operator in Japan and it began the project in order to reduce the supply risks caused by weather. The indoor farming facility will be set up in Kanagawa Prefecture to produce lettuce for stores in the Greater Tokyo Area. According to the report, the facility will cost about US$53.3 million and is scheduled to operate in January 2019 by Prime Delica, a subsidiary of Prima Meat Packers which makes items of boxed meals and others for the convenience store chain. The facility will be installed with LED lighting system to produce vegetables for about 70,000 salads per day. https://www.ledinside.com/
