About GFP

Producers not for 100 million, but 10 billion
The Global Farmers / Fishermen / Foresters / Food Manufacturers Project (GFP) is a project promoted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, exporting goods from Japan's agricultural, forestry and fishery businesses.

Producers of agriculture and fishing, forestry and food; sellers such as trading companies and distributors; and finally, the government. All of these must join together as one to engage in export. This is why we created the GFP: To build a community out of the country's spirited producers, and evaluate them to provide the necessary and optimal information for them. By aiding the formation production areas and networking fellow traders, we create actual export success stories.
Why Export Now?
The population of Japan is to dip close to 100 million people by 2050. And yet, the global population will be close to 10 billion. Every day, Japan requires more foodstuffs from overseas. Now is the time to send Japan's brands all over the world.

The GFP Community

Unlike domestic shipping, exports have the hurdles of various procedures, regulations and languages, as well as unique distribution channels, making it difficult for individual players to see continuous results.
In order to overcome such issues, we offer a service for individual players to find business partners and engage as intermediaries in negotiations.
In addition, authorities, JETRO and others join forces to provide one-stop support for initiatives in these communities.
