Why does Oshima shipyard grow tomatoes?
We're aiming to continue our business activities with the motto, "live together with the community."
In order to attain the motto, Oshima shipyard came up with the idea to diversify to produce such attractive local specialty as tomatoes, shochu spirits and microbrewed beer.
We are producing those products , expecting that those specialties remain in the mind of people who come to Oshima and they will see the island as their spiritual home.
Tomato is one of local specialties.
Oshima shipyard logo features an anchor and a tomato as a symbol of corporate creed.

The tomato is generally in acute shape.
