Hiroki Koga is the CEO and Co-Founder of Oishii, the company behind the world’s largest indoor vertical strawberry farm. Hiroki is on a mission to change the agriculture industry and how we grow food, and has his sights set on making Oishii the largest producer of strawberries in the world. He founded Oishii in 2016 while at Berkeley, pursuing his MBA, after he saw an incredible opportunity to bring fresh, delicious produce year-round to the U.S.With Hiroki’s leadership and integration of ancient Japanese farming techniques, Oishii is the only player in the industry to produce pollinated fruit – considered the most sophisticated crops to grow indoors because of long cultivation cycles – at a commercial scale using AI and machine learning technologies as well as zero pesticides to cultivate perfectly ripe, delicious strawberries year-round.
