The motto of Fellow Co., Ltd. is to contribute to society through medical care, and our main business is to support medical
institutions. I would like to go there, and within that, I would like to join you in promoting health through naturally cultivated vegetables provided by the Vegemo Group and creating a diverse community that utilizes the fields, so I made an investment. Square Co., Ltd.
Representative Director and President Naoki Hiramoto
Until now, I have been working with Prova Holdings Co., Ltd., where I am the representative, as a joint venture company in natural cultivation and agriculture-welfare collaboration projects. When I heard about the capital increase, I raised my hand thinking it would be an opportunity to deliver this wonderful initiative to more people. In addition to our existing partners, we hope to contribute to the expansion of Vegemo as an investor.
Yanshuten Co., Ltd.
Representative Director Yasushi Takahashi
The reason I took part in this project is that through this industry, children can become healthy, both physically and mentally. The organic vegetables grown here are sweet and delicious. I also ate all the carrots that I pulled from the field, including the leaves. To be honest, it was shockingly delicious. Children who don’t like vegetables can enjoy it, and above all, it’s 100% naturally grown vegetables without pesticides. The people who grow these vegetables were also full of pride and smiles, and their appearance was overflowing with health. As someone who values ​​the same food, I have never seen an industry that is so full of health. I realized that the ideal dietary habits exist here, just as the old sayings, “Medicine and food are the same source” and “People eat for heaven,” have been advocating the importance of food since ancient times. I want children all over the world to spread this diet. Let’s do our best together! Office Kei Kikaku

For my children and grandchildren, and for their children, I support projects that contribute to health through naturally grown vegetables. I heard the words of a medical doctor about 60 years ago. It said, “We should reconsider the present agriculture. If we repeat disinfection over and over again to prevent insects from sticking to it, we humans will inevitably end up injuring our health in the future. We have to start by restoring nature to the soil. It will take years, so let’s start thinking seriously about organic farming now.” This is a true story from 60 years ago. This person is a doctor, but I was surprised to hear the story at that time. “In the first place, most people who come to see a doctor don’t need medicine. Cabbage is so sweet and delicious that it has bugs on it.” “Bacteria in the soil work well together to create a healthy soil, but humans use plenty of disinfectants in the vegetables and the soil. You are endangering human health by giving it so much, so you should reconsider growing vegetables.” This medical doctor was my classmate’s father. I learned that he was a splendid teacher who attracted a lot of respect and awe while being called an oddball by those around him. I have felt the importance of organic vegetables since that time (60 years ago). Of course, my father and mother grew organic vegetables in the fields we borrowed and raised us sisters. My parents were in good health. My father lived to be 97 and my mother to 90. According to my father, one of the keys to a healthy and long life is organic vegetables. I am very grateful that we sisters are now healthy because of that. Vegemo Co., Ltd. is spreading its wings to the world.
Marusho Co., Ltd.
Representative Director Akihiro Ando
Marusho Co., Ltd. is a company that manufactures (printing, finishing, and sewing) clothing such as T-shirts. In order to achieve the philosophy of employee happiness, we have been challenging agriculture as a new business since last year, with the main objectives of providing food safety and pesticide-free cotton cultivation. Mr. Vegemo has supported us, who are amateurs in agriculture, to take on the challenge of natural cultivation. When I heard about this capital increase, I hoped that Vegemo’s efforts would increase throughout Japan, and I wanted to support him by all means, so I cooperated. We hope that we can continue to cooperate in providing fields and a healthy life.
