食の未来ファンド運営のkemuri ventures、完全人工光・全自動植物工場を開発・提供するクレオテクノロジー社へ出資

食の未来1号投資事業有限責任組合を運営するkemuri ventures合同会社は、クレオテクノロジーに投資した。

クレオテクノロジー社とは

クレオテクノロジー社は、養液栽培による農作物生産を行う株式会社クレオ(2002年設立)の技術をもとに設立され、植物工場の開発・提供を行っている。従来型の植物工場の1/3の人数で運用可能で電力使用量も従来型の70%以下、生産コストを劇的に低下させた全自動型の植物工場を実現。さらにその植物工場で生産されたレタスは、露地栽培のレタスと比べても遜色のない300グラムを超える大型・高品質なレタスで、有名飲食店などで採用されている。

三宅泰正氏(株式会社クレオテクノロジー 代表取締役)のコメント

人工光植物工場は、従来から何度もブームを迎えてきた技術ですが、安定栽培の難しさ、高い栽培コスト、大きなレタスが栽培できず、業務用途に使いにくいなどの課題がありました。弊社の新型“水光”栽培システム「AN」は、「生産者視点による植物工場プラントの再定義」により、従来にない新しい栽培プロセスによる高品質・低価格栽培を可能にする世界初の技術となります。この度、食の未来ファンド様のご支援をいただけることとなり、大変興奮しております。株主の皆様のご支援の元、事業拡大を加速し、新鮮な野菜がいつでもどこでも手軽に食べられる世界の実現に向け邁進してまいります。

岡田 博紀(食の未来ファンド(kemuri ventures)代表パートナー)のコメント

三宅社長は、葉物野菜の生産・販売を現場に張り付いて長年行ってきました。その経験をベースに、完全人工光・全自動「植物工場プラント」を開発しました。「現場視点を存分に織り込んだアグリテック」に我々は惹かれました。クレオテクノロジー社の植物工場で栽培されたレタスは「サイズと日持ち」が特徴で、料理人や消費者から高い評価を得ています。また大手事業会社と業務提携し、大手外食チェーンや食品加工工場向けに植物工場プラントの提案を始めています。
クレオテクノロジー社の植物工場は、慢性的な人材不足にある一次産業への1つの解になる可能性、および気候変動や自然災害に対する安定的な野菜提供の1つの解になる可能性、を持っています。我々はフードテック特化型ファンドらしく、経営面と事業面でクレオテクノロジー社をサポートしていきます。
