Unprecedented disaster hit Japan on 11th March, 2011. Many precious lives were lost and many people still live under terrible conditions in the disaster area.
People in Fukushima suffer not only the disaster by the earthquake and tsunami but also the effect of the accident of the nuclear plant. Even the foods without restriction of shipment due to the radiation contamination cannot sell due to the harmful rumors and the people have a hard time.
JLMM likes to support the people by introducing and selling the products from the area and started the project "Shoppers Supporters".
We selected the items for daily use. Both individual purchase and sales cooperation at bazaars and charity events are welcomed.

Retort curry, tea, udon, handmade candies are ready now and more items are coming.
