Satake Corporation delivered and installed integrated rice milling line from rice milling and rinse-free rice processing to IH Rice Cooking to Aki Takata Agri Foods Co., Ltd (Yachiyo, Aki-Takata City, Hiroshima Prefecture). The new lines were completed on September 25, 2006.
Aki Takata Agri Foods Co., Ltd. is a semi-public corporation jointly invested by Aki-Takata City, JA North Hiroshima Branch (Agricultural Co-operative Associations) and Hiroshima Ekiben Co., Ltd. (Delicatessen Company).
Aki-Takata City is famous for producing quality tasty rice. The new plant was authorized by HACCP first in Japan in the integrated delicatessen production plant from rice milling and rice cooking, and attracted attentions from the industry.
It has a capacity of 3,000 lunch boxes per hour (20,000 lunch boxes per day) and delivers it to schools, hospitals, office dinings, restaurants and convenience stores. It is planned to deliver 1,500 tons/year (4 tons/day) of milled rice and rinse-free rice to superstores and other rice cooking plants in 5 years, which quantity is equivalent to 1/4 of total rice production in the area.
Satake Corporation accepted an order of the facility collectively, as a total food engineering company that can supply from rice milling to cooking by its own research and development. Satake also supplied JA North Hiroshima Branch with country elevators(*1) and rice centers(*2), and is proud that the rice harvested in this area is treated by Satake machinery. Satake will promote this complex widely.
