Cutting-edge environmental projects connecting agriculture to medical care *Finest Corporation (Sapporo City) materially recycles waste plastic from the JA Hokkaido Group, turns it into plastic containers for medical waste, and sells it again to all JA Hokkaido Kosei Hospitals. *

Finest Corporation (referred to as “Finest” including the entire group) is commissioned by JA Hokkaido to collect brown rice flexible containers discharged from the group’s Hokuren plants, reuse these waste flexible containers, and create new recycled plastic containers. Efforts to manufacture containers will begin in June 2024. ESG LLC, the core company of Finest Group, has been collecting waste flexible containers from Hokuren since April. The recycled plastic containers produced will be delivered again to the JA Hokkaido Group’s Zenkō Hospital, where they will be used to store infectious waste.

Finest works with companies that have advanced extrusion (injection) technology in plastic molding to mix recycled raw materials, which are normally mixed in small amounts of less than 10%, at a ratio of 20% to 30%, and then This makes it possible to provide high-quality containers.

Finest plans to work with partner companies to expand the circle of environmentally friendly SDGs in Hokkaido and increase sales volume. In the future, with the cooperation of Zen-Noh, we would like to play a role in connecting agriculture and medical care, with a view to expanding not only in Hokkaido but also nationwide.

It was a method. We are confident that this material recycling
