A-COOP Saga Inc. Business Stance
- As a seller of Japanese farm produce, we will serve as a trustworthy bridge that connects farmers and consumers.
- In order to always provide fresh and safe farm goods, we will always prioritize the use of products from Saga prefecture or Japanese products.
- In partnership with local JA branches, we will support JA's food and agriculture education by establishing farm produce corners in our stores where consumers can buy direct from local farmers and, in doing so, promote local production for local consumption and provide hands on experience of farming and food.
- The partnership between local JA branches and A-COOP stores nationwide should lead to expansion of the Japanese produce market.
