About us
Being a specialist as a bridge between farmer and consumer

Our vision

We bring
people health and happiness
through the food

Message

In its more than 90 years of involvement in the distribution of fruits and vegetables, Funasho Co., Ltd., has always adapted to the societal and technological changes it has faced.
In recent years, we opened our second low-temperature logistics center in 2017 to manage fresh foods much more thoroughly and established the delivery company Funasho Global Cargo Co., Ltd.
As a result, together with Farm Station Co., Ltd., which handles fruit and vegetable packaging and processing foods, we have successfully developed “one-stop service” in fruit and vegetable logistics.
From now on, we will strive to increase the contracted farmers and products in order to ensure stable supplies, and keep developing to offer solutions that thoroughly meet diversifying customer needs.
We will aim to be a company that will continue to deliver new value and convenience to the trading partners and consumers through the food products.
