NZTE sees healthy Japan F&B opportunities

22nd July 2021 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

Japanese consumers are becoming increasingly discerning about the food they eat and drink “and looking for everything that New Zealand excels in: premium products, products that are safe, sustainable, and trustworthy,” according to New Zealand Trade & Enterprise.

Insights from New Zealand’s first virtual trade mission to Japan found an opportunity for a “perfect partnership” in the functional food space, where New Zealand’s ‘seeds’ could be fed into abundant Japanese research and development resources.

NZTE said it also saw an opportunity in the trend for healthy foods, such as protein, good oils, vegan, gluten-free, and low-sugar products and probiotics, which are being increasingly incorporated into diet and lifestyle.
