JAS with Production Information

Due to the outbreaks of BSE and false labeling cases in recent years, consumers came to have anxiety on food safety and distrust on food labeling. In order to address the issues, restoring consumer confidence in foods is a matter of our highest priority.

As a new approach to secure the transparency and tractability on production and distribution information from farms to consumers, a new type of Specific JAS Standard with Production Information was established in 2003. The validity of production information is certified by Registered Certifying Bodies.

As of March 2006, there are three Standards with Production Information for beef, pork and agricultural products. New Standards are to be established depending on demands from consumers and producers
