12 Jan, 2017

 Students of Prof. Akiko Fujikoka’s seminar of the Faculty of Business Administration of Ryukoku University, will market the “Mikan dressing” and “Mikan Hadamaro lotion” they have developed in collaboration with Sowa Kajuen Co., Ltd. (Arita city, Wakayama prefecture), using mikan (mandarin orange) peels.
 Development of these merchandises began with the proposal by students from Prof. Fujioka’s seminar for effective recycling of the voluminous amount of “mikan peel” waste generated through the production of processed products, ※when the Fujioka seminar became involved with the “Agrifan Festa*” sponsored by Sowa Kajuen.
Following last year’s “mikan udon” noodles made by using mikan peels, this year, two merchandises using mikan peels were developed in collaboration with Sowa Kajuen (Wakayama prefecture) . The students target at selling 2,000 bottles of the “Mikan dressing” and 1,000 bottles of the “Mikan Hadamaro lotion”.
 ※A mikan harvesting event that takes place at Soka Kajuen to promote interactions between cities and farming villages.
