Marc Oshima's heritage, stemming from his Japanese and German parents, gave him a global perspective from an early age.
As a child, Oshima traveled a lot too and enjoyed exploring the food markets and learning about the food of other cultures.
These days, Oshima works to not only grow his Certified B Corp., mission-driven AeroFarms company based in Newark, N.J., but to help solve the most pressing issues across the produce industry, in the U.S. and beyond.
The company builds indoor, urban, vertical farms using proprietary aeroponics and LED light technology. It also partners with universities, and large corporations to improve their technology.
Increasing consumption of fresh produce is the overall mission, but there's more.
Learn what else Oshima cares about, why he cares and all the organizations in which he participates to make these goals come to fruition.
