Our current efforts on the SDGs

By using coffee residues, which have the deodorizing power five times more than activated charcoal, we have significantly reduced the odor of chicken droppings by about 30% in “Wow Coffee” and by about 90% in “+Coffee” (Researched by: Laboratory of food environment and hygiene Shoku-kan-ken, Inc.). It also reduces the unpleasant odor which occurs during the production of fertilizers.


The appropriate use of our organic fertilizer reduces the amount of nitrate nitrogen derived from nitrogen and phosphate derived from phosphorus, both of which were generated on agricultural land, thus prevents and significantly reduces marine contamination.

In addition to preventing water pollution (mainly for groundwater), it also provides people with safe and secure water.

By using 100% biodegradable bags, we are offering a solution to the reduction of microplastics found in the environment.


By recycling coffee residues and chicken droppings, we can reduce waste and transform it into organic fertilizer, thus mitigating the adverse effects on the soil as well as on the plants. It also allows us to make the most of the waste produced in Japan (not relying on imports and not influenced by purchase cost).


Our organic fertilizer prevents soil degradation and enables agriculture to be sustainable in a long term. It will stop the loss of biodiversity resulting from the use of chemical fertilizers.


By using chicken manure discharged from chickens raised without the use of antibiotics, we prevent land and marine pollution and contribute to reducing the risk of AMR infections.

Our future efforts on the SDGs

  • Our organic fertilizer can reduce poverty among producers to any extent by adding value and increasing productivity by sustainable agriculture.

  • Our organic fertilizer can secure food sustainably and improve nutritional status.

  • By making totally enclosable organic fertilizers from food residues in developed countries and promoting it in all countries including coffee producing countries, we will expand its use to all farmers including coffee farmers, and lead them to sustainable farming methods.

  • Our fertilizer will reduce water contamination all over the world, which is caused by the use of chemical fertilizers.

  • By using organic fertilizers, we can make the soil fertile and we aim to keep the agriculture sustainable.

  • Making the soil fertile using organic fertilizer enables a sustainable supply of “diet”. It has the potential to enrich countries and improve the work environments of the vulnerable (mainly children and women).

  • By teaching the method of producing organic fertilizer to all countries including coffee producing countries they can produce their own organic fertilizers, thereby stabilizing and expanding their own agricultural production and raising their domestic self-sufficiency rate.

  • Both coffee producing countries and coffee consuming countries will collaborate to produce sustainable coffee beans.
