  • Just when everyone thought that salads were a healthier option because of its low level of fat content and cholesterol in comparison to meat. However, little did everyone know that eating raw vegetables can be just as detrimental, if not more.

    The vegetables in these salads are eaten raw, which means that the possibility of ingesting pesticides and chemicals into our bodies is very high. If you are extremely conscious of the food you eat, take a look Panasonic’s factory farms and whisper a word of thanks.

    Factory Farmed Vegetables: How it Works

    Panasonic is among the most popular trusted brands in Japan when it comes to electronic appliances. But very few people may know that this company not only sells washing machines, televisions, and refrigerators but also salads. Since November 2015, Panasonic started capitalizing on factory farms to produce vegetables and appear to be appealing to the markets in Southeast Asia, especially Singapore.

    So how does vegetable factory farming work? Simply by growing these vegetables indoors in a controlled environment. Panasonic’s vegetables are grown in a soil-based environment and artificial lighting with the use of Panasonic’s LED lighting technology. Then after 30 days, lettuce, mizuna, and red peppers are harvested from the pots.

    Vegetable factory farming offers a stable supply of vegetable harvest which is expected to cut down the harvesting time from two to three months under traditional farming to only thirty days. Furthermore, 100% yield is expected as weather conditions are no longer a factor which makes it even easier to meet the growing demand for vegetable salads among consumers.
