Processed & Frozen Foods

The Japanese processed food market has traditionally been regarded as difficult to enter. However a the growing popularity of convenient and economical ready-to-eat meals which has opened up the market to foreign investors is being brought about by a combination of factors: The high-powered and fast-paced lifestyle of the stereotypical Japanese worker, the growing number of “single-person” households as well as the increasing popularity of convenience stores in Japan have all helped to fuel growth in Japan’s processed food market as an alternative to traditional home-cooked meals.
