Japan: Japanese Organic Market

The Japanese organic food market was estimated at approximately $1.4 billion as of 2009 with slow but steady growth to that point. Nonetheless the Japanese organic market is still limited in scope with significant challenges to expansion including limited domestic supply, underdeveloped distribution channelsvand a low level of consumer understanding of organics. Organic industry insiders believe that consumer interest in organics is increasing and that the growth potential of the market is significant. With the U.S. - Japan organic equivalency arrangement in place, ATO Japan can offer U.S. organic suppliers assistance with following market movements in Japan and taking advantage of opportunities that the Japanese organic market may present.
