Creating new business models across borders

Initiatives and Efforts

— from Osakaya Nagano to the world

In recent years, due to the development of the transportation network, the distribution of goods and the flow of people have become more popular, and the number of visitors from foreign countries to tourist attractions in various parts of Nagano Prefecture has increased with tremendous momentum. For the foreign visitors to visit the famous tourist spots located in the Kita-Shinshu region and the neighboring municipality, Osakya would like them to enjoy the fruits from the Northeast Nagano Pref., especially the fruits from Nakano and Yamanouchi regardless of the season, while introducing the characteristics and goodness of fruits of Nagano Prefecture too. We are concentrating on creating a new business model and strive for coexistence and co-prosperity with the local community by continuously growing and diversifying our efforts.

In addition, as one of the businesses that we are currently focusing on, we are strengthening our connection with overseas customers and exporting and selling grapes and peaches, including apples of Nagano Prefecture. In recent years, with the development of the harvest extension technology and the long-term storage technology, we can ship the delicious fruit which maintains high quality to be able to cope with the trend and the seasonal spot demand of the overseas market, even if it passes the shipping peak of the fruit. We are planning to expand our business to the countries of Chinese and Asia,and so as the countries in the Middle East where transport time is taking.
