Our Movement for the future
Tokyo Seika is working towards finding new and innovative solutions to an antiquated and costly distribution system while meeting the ever-changing needs of our clients, whoever they are such as grower cooperatives or wholesalers or jobbers or super market chains. The number of persons in the household is declining and with it consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. We seek ways to reduce costs to make fresh produce more affordable for the family, and to promote a healthier life style with greater consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. We have recommended to grower cooperatives that they change their packaging size to smaller units to accommodate smaller families. Food safety is of utmost importance to Tokyo Seika. Consumers and supermarket chains are demanding that fresh produce must be documented and tracked along the distribution system. We encourage and support its implementation. It is also a great concern for us that packaging for fresh produce impacts the environment. We encourage and support the use of product in reusable plastic containers. Tokyo Seika endeavors to make life better for the Japanese consumer through innovation with help of either new things or methods.
In 2017,Tokyo Seika celebrates its 70th anniversary. Domestic growers and cooperatives in Japan have asked our assistance to export their fresh produce to foreign markets.
We are afraid we need to decline importing fresh produces from foreign countries.
We do not export Japanese fresh produces. Tokyo Seika sells to the authorized buyers in Japan.
