Functional & Health Foods

Japan has one of the largest health food markets in the world, and also has the market with the strictest regulations. In an ageing market, health food is especially important in the minds of consumers and it can therefore be difficult to gain accreditation, or to make certain claims about foods. It may be necessary to partner with an organisation with laboratory facilities in order to meet the requirements, should you wish to make health benefit claims in the Japanese market.
