Gifts Security Safety Declaration

In addition to deliciousness from small children to the elderly, in order to eat rice with feeling safe, HachidaimeGihey has set its own safety standards.HachidaimeGihey, while receiving advice from nuclear experts, in order to be able to deliver safe rice to everyone, we set safety standards, we deliver only rice that has carried out radioactive measurement inspection and confirmed "undetected" (*).Also, the information on the rice production area is all released on the sweet rice gift website.

(※) Shipped only with rice that was "undetected" using NaI scintillation detector.
Let the "reference value of radioactive material" be 8.4 Bq which is 1/10 or less of the government standard.
Rice (General food) Government standard 100 Bq HachidaimeGihey original criteria 8.4 Bq

About radioactivity detector

Item name
  • NaI (TI) scintillation detector
  • Food radiation screening system CSK-2i
Measurement item
  • Radioactive cesium 134 (measurement lower limit: 3.5 Bq / kg)
  • Radioactive cesium 137 (measurement lower limit: 4.8 Bq / kg)
  • However, the measurement lower limit may be somewhat around depending on the environment at the time of inspection.

Radiological examination system of HachidaimeGihey

The radiation inspection system of HachidaimeGihey is carried out as follows.

Measured by the warehouse manager for each goods receipt of brown rice

Brown rice is inspected immediately after receipt

Measure by placing unpolished rice in a special test container

The weight of unpolished rice for inspection is unified to 1.00 kg

Install brown rice to be inspected on the detector. Stop the lid, completely block the influence from the outside

NaI scintillation detector installed in the inspector

Radioactivity test measured for 30 minutes

Screen under examination

On the case where a radioactive substance is detected

When the detection of radioactive material from rice is confirmed, within 1 hour, the result will be announced on the site and the rice will be shipped out.In addition, we will set up an inquiry window dedicated to customers.

What do you think about rice agriculture in Japan?

Turning to the production site of rice in Japan, cultivation abandoned areas are becoming a serious problem as producers aged.In the days when it was said that "rice feast" once, there was a farming method sticking to each producer, there were many "really delicious rice".However, as the rice price goes down, it seems that "truly delicious rice" has decreased as farming progresses, elderly cease rice production, or emphasis on quantity rather than quality it is.

On the other hand, there are countries overseas that make delicious rice at a price of about one tenth of Japan.If Japanese do not understand "really delicious rice", when rice is imported from abroad by TPP (Pacific Rim Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement) and FTA (Free Trade Agreement), I think that it will easily be replaced by overseas rice.When it happens, can Japanese continue to make rice in Japan?Is Japanese rice agriculture OK?Is not it a very worrisome thing for Japan's economy and culture?

As long as Japanese people know the taste of "really delicious rice", no matter how much foreign rice is in, Japan's rice can be compared.In order to protect rice agriculture in Japan, we also want to distribute delicious rice with a different concept from brands and production areas.
