Kamiya Farm, a pig farmer in Itoman City, collaborated with Kanemasa Meat
, a meat dealer, processor, and seller in Yonabaru Town and mixed pineapple into the feed to
co-develop Pineapple-Pork. Development of this pork began after they took note
that meat becomes tender when mixed with pineapple in dishes such as sweet and
sour pork. About 1,700 pigs are shipped each year. “Pineapple-Pork Jun” is a brand
that gained popularity even outside the prefecture for its buttery tenderness.

At Kamiya Farm, extra attention is given to the water that the pigs drink. The water
that’s made using a special device contains static electricity and makes water that’s
healthy for living creatures. By feeding the pigs this water that’s even used for
treating diseases, they’re able to raise high-quality pigs.

The characteristics of “Pineapple-Pork Jun” is obvious when one looks at the table of
ingredients. Compared to regular pork, it has 10-20% less calories and fat. On the
other hand, the amount of vitamin B2 is 1.5 times more, amino acids such as leucine
and lysine that provide sweetness is 4 to 5 times more, and unsaturated fatty acids
are 2 times more. This proves that “Jun” is indeed a healthy and flavorful pork.
