Grow your sales funnel in a market that offers unparalleled potential.

With its elevated culinary culture, high dependency on food imports, and free-trade agreement with many western nations, Japan offers incredible opportunities for Western food and beverage exporters.

But expanding into Japan requires a conscientious and tactful approach that:
  • Respects business traditions and cultural nuances
  • Understands local consumer preferences
  • Abides by meticulous quality standards
  • Markets products and communicates selling points effectively
  • Considers all licensing and documentation requirements

Pairing our deep experience in the Japanese market with our extensive network of connections and partners, we oversee the entire market development process on your behalf, from consulting to sales, management, and ongoing representation.
