  • Wholesaler handling Fukushima rice goes bankrupt

    A Tokyo wholesaler that was handling rice from Fukushima Prefecture is set to become the nation's first rice wholesaler to go under due apparently to harmful rumors of radioactive contamination in connection with the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant.

    Tokyo Shoko Research Ltd. said Dec. 1 that Watanabe Shoji K. K. based in Tokyo's Shibuya Ward was notified by the Tokyo District Court on Nov. 24 of the start of bankruptcy proceedings
