20/32 － Capabilities for Development and Proposals to Create Markets （3）
With regard to the workability I mentioned earlier, as a matter of fact, our affiliate FP Chupa Corporation offers a broad array of containers for fresh fruit and vegetables. Fruit and vegetables are easier to stock on shelves and easier to maintain when they are packed and neatly arranged. As a result, containers are now used in large quantities for vegetables and fruit, although it is not so noticeable. FP Chupa, one of our subsidiaries, is undertaking its marketing efforts more towards Japan Agricultural Cooperatives. Meanwhile, we at FP Corporation are approaching the fruit and vegetables section of supermarkets. The two of us are proposing FP Chupa's containers for fruit and vegetables to two different potential customers to expand this market. The market is now growing at a rate of 20% or more.
