Oishii announced the opening of their newest farm in Los Angeles, making their strawberries available outside of the greater New York area for the first time.
“Since our earliest days, consumers, chefs, and retailers have all been asking us to bring our berries to LA. We can’t wait for more people to experience endless summer with the Omakase Berry as our company continues to reimagine the future of farming,” said Hiroki Koga, CEO and Co-Founder of Oishii.
In addition to direct delivery available via Oishii.com, Oishii’s berries will be available for sale at Destroyer, the Culver City cafe atelier from Chef Jordan Kahn.
In March, Oishii closed a $50 million Series A, with funding dedicated to opening new markets and investing in R&D for new technologies. The vertical farm is currently in development on new strawberry varietals, as well as other types of flowering produce, such as tomatoes, melons, and peppers.
