Tsunan Sake Brewery held its 70th Shareholders’ Meeting on Sunday, December 3, 2023, where Kengo Suzuki was officially appointed as the Representative Director. During his visit, Suzuki reported on his new appointment and discussed business activities in Tsunanmachi.

Tsunan Sake Brewery has a deep interest in the fermentation industry in Tsunanmachi, particularly in the production process of organic fertilizer and the actual state of mushroom production. In addition, Tsunanmachi is a producer of fermented compost made from used mushroom beds and cattle manure. The presence of dried mushroom beds is important for moisture control during organic fertilizer production. The importance of the mushroom industry in the region was highlighted.
