Although there are many world-class farmers in Japan, there are few contacts with overseas countries, and only a few percent of the farmers participate in exports. The reason for not participating is simple: “It’s not profitable.”
The concept of “Wafood Airport” is to set up a farmers’ direct sales store at an airport where there are many foreigners, cut out the middlemen, and let the farmers decide the price and sell.
Due to limited space, this service will only start with one farmer per day and 90 people for three months, but we are confident that by taking the first step, we will be able to turn exports into something profitable and exciting. doing.
