Food Supplements

Question: how do we acquire the license to operate as Distributor of food supplements in Japan? I would like to know the requirements. I have a friend who is a distributor of food supplements here in the Philippines and I am assisting her on her plan to distribute their products abroad particularly in Japan. Hope I could get some answers here. We already have our license to operate here in the Philippines and some important documents. I know Japan has their list of requirements too. We would like to acquire those, as we want everything done legally.

Answer: You would probably get your best answer by contacting the Japanese government. Anyone here could give their best guess, but getting the facts directly from those whose job it is to answer the question would probably be your best bet. Plus, they can start the process of getting you the license while you're talking to them if you're ready. Good luck!
