Oysters are popular not only in Japan but around the world as they are characterized by being low in fat, high in protein, rich in minerals, and rich in vitamins.

On the other hand, oysters play a role in cleaning seawater and absorbing carbon dioxide, and if the catch of oysters increases too much, it may have an adverse effect on the environment.

Pearlita Foods aims to artificially create oysters to enjoy their taste and protect the environment.

Pearlita Foods' artificial oysters are made based on mushrooms and seaweed, and a tasting of this artificial oyster was held on November 16, 2022. Participants in the tasting party left impressions such as 'the texture is similar to that of real oysters' and 'the taste of restaurant quality', and the tasting party was a success.

Pearlita Foods also plans to produce artificial squid and artificial scallops in the future.
