    in the fields of food services,
    food manufacturing, and nursing.

  • We will provide fair and appropriate support for recruiting
    human resources utilizing the Specified Skilled Worker Systems.

  • Contribute to the creation of a
    society in which multiple cultures coexist.


We support the utilization of foreign
workers as the cornerstone of growth and
evolution for companies.

It is inevitable that Japan’s working population will continue to decline. Even if labor and personnel saving have evolved by using technology, there are still many businesses that do not involve human intervention in order to enrich our lives.

Japan Food and Beverage Foreign Employment Association believes that it is necessary for both the host company and the foreign workers who work to deepen mutual understanding in the times when the labor force of foreigners will be further needed in Japan in the future.

We hope that will be the cornerstone of growth and evolution for everyone involved, not a temporary system for securing a labor force.

Greetings from the Executive Director.

Foreigners seize opportunities in Japanese society.At the same time, it contributes to the social development of Japan.
