What is a plant factory using artificial light?

Stable crop production is becoming a global challenge due to the worldwide extreme weather and natural disasters caused by climate changes.  Plant factory using artificial light is a cultivation method that is attracting attention as a

solution for the problem and for which the needs is expected to grow in the future.  NPC Incorporated launched a plant

factory using artificial light utilizing a section of Matsuyama Factory, where hydroponic vegetables are raised

with LED in a closed indoor environment.  Their cultivating conditions such as temperature, humidity, and carbon

dioxide concentration are controlled so that we can harvest steadily in a short time.  A part of the electricity for the plant factory is provided by an in-house power generation using used solar panels.

We deliver safe vegetables of stable quality, with a low environmental load throughout its production process.
