Leading Trade Paper in Japanese Food Industry

The Japan Food Journal is the leading trade paper in the Japanese food industry. Our inaugural issue was published by an organization affiliated with the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in 1943, and we celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2018.
The environment of food industry has been changing rapidly, and the demand for securing food and keeping the balance of supply and demand is expected to grow on the global level. The diet of Japanese consumers is becoming increasingly diverse, and as more food ingredients and products are imported from overseas, we must learn, think and act globally.
The Japan Food Journal is a source of the latest news from various segments of the food industry, such as milk and dairy products, spices and condiments, flour, confectionery, oils, frozen foods, canned and bottled foods, alcohol beverages, processed agricultural and marine products, and distribution thereof, as well as restaurants, home-meal replacements, such as bento boxes and deli foods, ingredients, machinery and materials, and so on.
