Under the policy that entire production process is to be fully controlled, KAPI soybeans is produced with closed-loop system to cover seed propagation through delivery to customers.

Developing Closed loop production system

Good quality seed is an important factor for good product. To assure food safety, it is critical to control seed purity of such 10% of total production. Own seed propagation can achieve better purity and quality compared with seed purchased from seed company.
