euglena Ishigaki Nuchigusui Project

Euglena Ishigaki Nuchigusui Project

Taking Ishigaki Island as our base, we will extensively promote the benefits of Euglena from Ishigaki Island and products produced locally in Okinawa in order to contribute toward further development of the region of Okinawa, with the goal of helping the people of Okinawa and all who visit the islands to be healthy in both mind and body through food.

[Project Details]

Focusing on materials produced in Okinawa Prefecture, we are cooperating with companies located there to develop food products and menu items that use nutrient-rich Euglena from Ishigaki Island as locally produced products.

[The Meaning of “Nuchigusui”]

In the local Okinawan dialect, this word means “to make healthy (or heal) both the mind and body through contact with nature and food.”

[About the Logo]

The circle-shaped logo incorporates an image of the Chinese banyan tree, which is said to have a strong life force and power, and grows in many areas of Ishigaki Island. Similar to Euglena from Ishigaki Island, the Chinese banyan tree prefers lots of sunlight, and in the language of flowers it means “Health” and “Much happiness.”
