Development and sale of raw (unsalted) mozuku using Miyakojima Mozuku

We have developed "Green Mozuku" as a new product using raw Miyakojima Mozuku that does not store salt.
Green Mozuku developed the market for Miyakojima Mozuku as an ingredient targeted at diet-restricted consumers who want mozuku, which is a salad-like ingredient that is not flavored, and those who pay attention to their health.

In this project, we decided to start cooperation and cooperation by utilizing the management resources of both parties.

Structure of collaborations and management resources to be utilized

Green Mozuku
Mozuku is frozen by greening fresh mozuku by heat sterilization.

Vivid green shines by boiling.
You can expect the effect of visually coolness.
You can thaw it and eat it in a salad or somen style.

Expected Economic Effects
Sales of new products (FY2012): 7.5 billion yen
Number of new job creations associated with this collaboration: 10
(Fy2012, the entire collaboration body)
Establishment of local brand "Miyakojima Mozuku": "Miyakojima Green Mozuku"

 New Collaboration Business

Development and commercialization of paper tubes, scallops, and mozuku drying methods using a combination of hot air drying and microwave heating

Certification date: July 19, 2007 Volume number: 3-19-098

Business Overview (Newness, Marketability, etc.)
Microwave heating is used in combination with the drying method in the paper tube manufacturing process, and drying is possible in a short time.
The drying method used in combination with microwave heating was applied to the drying of the mozuku to shorten the drying time, yield is good, and hygienic processing was realized. In addition, this device improves the efficiency of work.
There are about 85 manufacturers in Japan that require paper tube dryers, and more than 250 in factories.
About the scallops, the production volume in Japan is largest in China, which is 530,000 tons per year.
For dried mozuku, there is an annual production volume of 20,000 tons in Okinawa Prefecture, and there are more than 10 processing companies and more than 25 companies considering drying.
We are also considering overseas sales of paper pipes and scallop dryers.

Let's do something about Fujieda tea project

西光エンジニアリング(株)The T:SystemSHIMIZUA SDGs Action!Applying for

In order to increase the production volume of Fujieda tea, cellulose nanofibers for food derived from Fujieda tea (CNF)and plans to commercialize them in 2019 and launch them in 2020.
Project establishment date: Reiwa 2, 1st year

 In the Purpose
Invigorating the regionThe City of Tea “Fujieda "By rebuilding the tea garden, we will put a stop to the increase in abandoned tea gardens that are expanding in the sloped tea garden in the mountainous areas of Fujieda City.


We cooperate with seven major beverage manufacturers, tea farmers in Shizuoka Prefecture, and tea machine manufacturers.


西光エンジニアリング (株) Based on the Regional Economic Traction Project Plan approved in 2018, we have developed a CNF concentrator and a green tea-derived CNF manufacturing equipment.
CNF for foods derived from green tea is said to be effective, such as sustained aroma.
However, since the fiber length of green tea is shortened when nano-sized, it was necessary to devise such as make a long fiber length of rough tea.
In order to promote production facilities and product development in the future, we are working on the development of new products by utilizing various subsidies such as 5 million yen for food CNF research from the Shizuoka Prefecture Industrial Promotion Foundation.


 Effective use of Fujieda tea
   2Effective use of tea leaves after The Bancha

2019On Friday, April 5, 2010, we established a project (hereinafter, the Fujieda Tea Project) to manage Fujieda tea, which is a group of Fujieda tea officials.
Aiming to create products in Fujieda City
It is published in the hometown specialty support declaration Decompression fermented teaAnd
Fujieda tea is used as a raw material.CNF for foods derived from green tea
For rehydration for the elderly Throri Fujieda
We are working on these R&D projects.
The ultimate goal of the Fujieda Project is to revitalize the local community and rebuild the tea capital ,Fujieda.
Effective use of lower-grade tea after the second tea is a problem.
Flavor Fujieda Green Tea, which will be commercialized in this project, aims mainly to make effective use of Fujieda tea's lower-grade tea, and members of the Fujieda Tea Project will gather to commercialize it.

 Fujieda Green Tea Moon Peach Research and Development
   Research on flavors mainly based on moon peaches and moon peaches

 Flavored Fujieda Green Tea, Moon Peach
This is a collaboration product of the flavor of medicinal plants that grow naturally in Fujiedacha and Miyako Island, and is a powder package that allows you to take all of the ingredients held by green tea and medicinal plants.
It is a simple packaging in a flat bag for cost reduction.

In Miyakojima City, which is a friendly city with Fujieda City, we paid attention to the fact that there are many medicinal plants that grow naturally, such as moon peaches (sanin), longevity grass (button bowfish), and lemongrass, and we prototyped flavored green tea blended with dried powder dried with microwaves and powder of Fujieda tea. It was hot in Fujieda, and it was tasted with ice cream in Miyako Island, but the results were both well received.
In this project, by utilizing the dry powder of medicinal plants that grow naturally on Miyako Island, even cold tea such as jasmine tea has a strong aroma,Flavored Fujieda Green Teafrom Miyako Island, which likes to drink such tea, and expand its sales channels to countries such as Okinawa Prefecture, Southeast Asia, and Taiwan.

1) Research on how to process flavors with good color and aroma.
Compare dried products after steaming with dried products of raw tea.
It also serves as a cleaning and sterilization, to determine the optimal steaming conditions for the fuller bar of steaming.
2) Research on how to drain after steaming.
It is necessary to drain in a short time and dry quickly, and consider a method that can be processed in a short time.
