Founder of Olive beef, Mr. Masaki Ishii from Ishii Farm with Paul Dojo (Feb. 23, 2018) 

 

By effectively using olives grown in Kagawa Prefecture as feed for Wagyu, Masaki Ishii successfully created Olive Beef after years of working to develop a beef brand unique to Kagawa Prefecture. 

Following extensive research and relentless efforts, Mr. Ishii was able to develop Olive Beef containing a high level of oleic acid and characterized by a well-balanced combination of watery fat with a lower melting point and savory lean meat. In 2014, he received an award from Japan’s Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries for his outstanding achievements.
