Japan: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JA2023-0101

In 2022, the total sales from the Japan food service industry increased 14.2 percent, totaling nearly $237 billion, representing consecutive year double digit growth. The recovery in the sector is largely attributed to the strong rebound in tourism, with visitors to Japan exceeding 10 million, boosting the recovery in restaurant sales in all categories. Japan’s food service industry will continue to depend on imported foods, and the U.S. is well positioned to continue supplying this segment.
