Japan’s organic market

Significant potential for further growth

According to the Japan Organic Food Market Summary, the Japanese organic food market had total revenues of US$1.6 billion in 2021, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2% between 2016 and 2021 and is estimated to be worth US$1.94 billion by 2026. Japan’s low share of arable land leads to high demand for imported organic food and beverages.

More and more Japanese consumers are re-thinking their contribution towards Japan’s sustainable development goals, with incorporating eco-friendly and sustainable goods into their lifestyles. This may have been largely triggered by the G20 Summit in Osaka 2019. Awareness of organic as a concept is on the rise and international organic products are considered to be of premium quality.

Further positive impulses are expected as more and more supermarket chains are getting into the organic trade. Also the rising organic e-commerce is facilitating the distribution of organic food all over the country. The launch of the “Organic Village” project by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) has the target to stimulate the growth of the organic share to 25% by 2050.
