FoodPHILIPPINES in Japan Market
Japan is the Philippines’ largest export destination for fresh foods and the 2nd largest market for processed food, next to the United States.
In January 2016, the Philippine export industry recorded a total revenue of US$950.52 million, which comprises 22.7 percent of the country’s global export. It increased by 7.7 percent from US$ 882.61million compared to the same month in 2015.
Japan is the third largest economy in the world. It is one of the world’s most import-dependent countries, importing at least 60% of its food requirements worth US$52 billion every year.
With the existing Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA), Japan provides an attractive and vast market for Philippine food suppliers to serve the retail, food service, and manufacturing industries.
