We aim to focus on consumer needs in our rice production and sales, seeking to grow demand and ensure a stable supply.

Rice is the indispensable staple of the Japanese diet. To stabilize its supply and demand, all members of the JA Group work together to promote systematic production tailored to demand and expand stable sales based on demand from business partners.
We are also encouraging greater rice consumption through marketing that highlights the appeal of rice.
