Market Overview

The canned food industry in Japan is broad and varying. The canning process was introduced to Japan roughly 150 years ago by a Frenchman who shared the technology for canning sardines in oil with the Japanese. In this nation, canned food was traditionally used as emergency rations or as a go-to source for specific preserved goods like tuna or fruit. However, canned foods are being consumed in whole new ways in Japan. Japan now produces 67% of the world's total canned food variety. Fruit and vegetables, as well as meats, sauces, and soups, are among the canned items exported worldwide. Japan's canned options are as broad, but may appear to Western consumers to be a little stranger. Canned curry sauce, as well as traditional Japanese meals such as canned beef bowl, dashimaki tamago Japanese omelet, and buta no kakuni stewed pork, are popular. The variety of canned food products available in Japan is frequently displayed in designated sections of supermarkets and department shops; there are specialty canned goods stores and even a chain of canned-food bars where customers may mix their favorite canned food with drinks.
