Activities of FFBA

In recent years, Japan’s domestic market has been shrinking; this is due to Japan’s decreasing birth rate and aging population. Now food manufacturers are looking to overseas markets to increase their revenue.But, there are significant trade barriers for small food manufacturers seeking to penetrate the foreign market and there are only small handfuls that have succeeded at this task.For surmounting the obstacles we in partnership with Fukuoka food manufacturers established the “Fukuoka Food Business Association (FFBA).” We can Work in unison to challenge and ultimately make a greater impact on overseas market.


We have monthly meetings to exchange information about foreign market, regulations and others.
