Small businesses and twinning

The Toyota City Partnership is working towards opening up trade between Derbyshire and Japan. 

We believe there's a market in Japan for local goods, especially those which are considered quintessentially English, specialist or natural and environmental. Products and services such as:

  • food and drink
  • cosmetics, skin care and perfume
  • sustainable energy
  • gifts
  • clothing and accessories
  • pottery and china
  • stationery
  • technical specialisms
  • crafts

To help small businesses to plan for export, the partnership board organises free events to share information and experiences. 

The East Midlands Chamber of Commerce has more information to support businesses.

Watch our video for some insights into exporting to Japan from Derbyshire.
