About Us

JFACO was founded in 2009 to create a “value network between food and agriculture” and a sustainable development of farming that would lead to the next generation.

We have many members from various related industries such as agricultural company, Japan Agricultural Corporations (JA), food manufacturers, restaurant industry, and the retail distribution industry.

We regularly hold workshops called “agri-business seminar”. We are also making a platform where our members and related parties can cooperate with each other.
