Market Entry Japan – Food

Japan is the world’s third largest economic power.
High purchasing power, a stable political and economic system, and a population of 127 million provide a sound basis for market entry. However, the prolonged recession has changed the market and not all products are suitable for the Japanese market.
Nonetheless, German exporters should not be deterred by the horror stories of complicated distribution channels, language barriers or high product requirements!
