Partnership Opportunities: Japanese Profile of the Month

A Japanese organic bowcha tea manufacturer is looking for distribution partners in the EU

A Japanese company located in Kanazawa is manufacturing organic certified bowcha tea, a tea made from the stem of the tea plant. The company is looking for distribution partners in the EU. The company obtained the “Organic JAS” label for its roasted bowcha tea, equivalent to the “Organic agriculture Europe” certification.

Bowcha is well recognised in the Japanese market, especially since a major global coffee shop chain adopted bowcha for their seasonal speciality menu. Outside of Japan however, bowcha is less known compared to matcha green tea in the EU. Therefore, they wish to collaborate with potential partners with the aim to raise awareness of bowcha in the EU. They hope to work together with potential EU partners who would be importers, distributors, resellers and/or wholesalers of the organic tea.
