Export system and facility development.
JA Kagoshima Federation of Economic and Agricultural Cooperatives has been preparing the region for exporting sweet potatoes since 2020 through the Global Farmers / Fishermen / Foresters / Food Manufacturers Project. There is great overseas demand for good quality Japanese sweet potatoes, and efforts are being made in overseas market surveys, negotiations with buyers, overseas fairs, etc., to further expand overseas sales channels.
PR activities overseas
Sweet potatoes are exported to regions centered on Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand (exports of sweet potatoes have been declining in recent years due to the impact of foot rot).
