1. Background

While the food industry in Japan is expected to face challenges due to the declining birth rate and aging population, the interest for Japanese food products is increasing in the overseas market. This trend was partially influenced by the fact that washoku (Japanese cuisine) was registered on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list, thus prompting Japanese agricultural and fishery producers to consider market expansion abroad. Notably, France is a very attractive market for Japanese companies due to the Japan-Europe Economic Partnership Agreement, the celebration of Japonism 2018 commemorating 160 years of Japan-France diplomatic relations, and France’s cultural interest and knowledge of food.

Meanwhile, Japanese producers who attempted to expand their sales abroad have faced challenges due to a number of issues and as a result, many producers did not opt to expand their business abroad. In addition, EU countries have strict food safety standards and producers who would like to expand their businesses abroad are subject to submit various applications related to exporting goods overseas.

To solve the problems faced by Japanese producers and companies, Yamato Group and JAL decided to launch this project. The two companies will construct a platform that supports regional businesses in Japan to import/export products in the overseas market. They will also set up an antenna shop in the heart of Paris called “Le gout du Japon,” where they will sell agricultural and fishery products from Japan.

2. Service Outline

By combining the strengths of the Yamato Group and JAL, the two companies will support companies to import/export products between the two countries and offer retail locations; with a goal to help Japanese producers expand their sales channels in Paris, France.

For deliveries within France, the companies will cooperate with Chronopost; the largest transport company in France operating under the DPD Group.
