[ Message from the President ]

Along with the rapid globalization taking place around the world, the imported fresh produce industry faces turbulent times. In the midst of that social context, we must accurately grasp the flow of the times to respond in a timely manner to the ever-accelerating diversification of food culture and sophistication of consumer attitudes. In an effort to support a food culture that caters to the needs of the times, Funasho Shoji provides fresh, safe, delicious products through bold, yet careful and unique, projects that include the development of growing areas and products and the improvement of processing technology.

Fruit makes people happy. In order to share that happiness with clients, growers, employees, and consumers, we will continue our ongoing efforts to further consolidate the trust and quality that we fostered for over 40 years.

We ask for your continued support and guidance.
