Are you interested in the fruit industry in Japan? Ever wondered where the fruit sold at your local supermarket was coming from and why it is so expensive? Come and hear from Noel Shields, CEO of JWM Asia Holdings Limited. With over 30 years experience in the fruit industry, Noel will shed light on some of the forces and drivers at play in the Japanese fruit market. He'll also discuss what importers should be thinking of when trying to tap into this lucrative market as well as comment more generally on the overall consumption trends. 

Australia and New Zealand have been exporting fruit to Japan for decades, and the market continues to grow. In 2015, the market hit an all time high with fruit and vegetable imports topping USD93,701 billion. With the Japan Australia Economic Partnership Agreement in force and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (otherwise known as CPTPP or TPP11) being ratified across the TPP nations, Australia and New Zealand fruit exporters stand to gain from opportunities in this market. Both nations, as net food exporters have considerable experience exporting high-quality produce to Asian markets, so exporters should be well positioned to meet this demand.
