Organic Produce

The Japanese organic food market, worth around $1.3-1.4 billion in 2010, is relatively low compared to global levels. However, given the growing food concerns and the size of the food market in Japan, this organic market has a very high growth potential. According to the “Japan Organic Market Report 2010-2011”, demand for organic products, though moderate, is steadily increasing. The Ministry of Agriculture, Forests and Fisheries (MAFF) confirmed that trend as it reported that the organic food market had grown by 0.14% in 2011.
