Halal Products In Japanese Market
Where can you find halal food products in the Japanese market?
Today, the availability of halal food in supermarkets and even in convenience stores makes life more comfortable for the Muslim residents and also gives travelers peace of mind, especially those who would like to visit small towns.
Compared even to a year ago, it is much easier to find not only halal food restaurants and ethnic halal food shops throughout Japan, but also a number of halal food products in supermarkets like Gyomu and Aeon.
Kobe Bussan, known as Gyomu Super, is a leading food production and distribution company in Japan that runs over 800 stores nationwide.
Since 2012, many of these stores in areas where there are a significant number of Muslims living or visiting as tourists have offered more than 100 halal food products. Depending on demand, stores may offer a limited number of products, including chicken meat, frozen food, seasonings, and snacks.
The Gyomu stores’ location map is in Japanese, but it has an English section introducing some of the items they provide with a brief description. You can find the names and directions to some of the stores in major cities on our List of Halal Food Shops here on the Halal In Japan Website.
In March 2016, Aeon Group launched TOPVALU’s halal food for Muslims at its 25 stores in the Kanto region. TOPVALU is Aeon’s private brand.
Today, about 130 of their stores in Japan are selling halal foods that are certified by JAKIM, the national certification body of halal in Malaysia. The number of Aeon stores offering halal food products is increasing. You can find the list and the locations of all Aeon Stores on the Aeon website.
On the Halals Page of this website, you can find a list of various businesses in Japan that offer halal or Muslim-friendly products and services.
On the Basic Info Page, there is a considerable amount of information for those who want to visit Japan as well as newcomers who are studying, working, and living in Japan.
We have a list of halal products that you can purchase on the Rakuten website. The list contains many products, including foods, snacks, baby powdered milk, and hijab.
The Halal In Japan Facebook Page has a collection of halal foods and beverages which have been provided by organizations like the Nippon Asia Halal Association ("NAHA") and Japan Halal. The collection consists of photo albums, which makes it much easier to find the items in any store. It covers many items, including halal bread and naan, dairy products, cakes, cookies, and chocolates.
Halal Japan Mobile App
To feel free to shop in any store, you can opt for the Halal Japan App, a halal food identifier for people who live in Japan. The Halal Japan Team has selected products used by Muslims on a daily basis and checked with the respective manufacturers to identify the origin of the ingredients and to make sure that they are safe to consume.
