This project is mainly conducted by the Japan Asian Association & Asian Friendship Society (JAFS). Osaka Prefecture is also supporting the smooth operation of the project as one of the participating members.

There are eight donation types. Depending on your donation amount, small gifts will be provided to you in return. (Donation amount: eight types ranging from 1,000 JPY to 100,000 JPY). Please refer to the website below for more details about the project or donation types.

It’s a coined word made of “crowd” and “fund”. It means that an unspecified large number of people (i.e. “crowd”) provide financial aid or other contributions (i.e. “fund”) to individuals or organizations usually through the Internet.

Why don’t you enjoy some delicious produce derived from Osaka livestock?

==================================================================

Since Osaka Prefecture is a large metropolis, there are not many livestock farms and those that exist are small in size. As a result, the amount of production is significantly limited. However, from the passion to offer painstakingly produced livestock products to as many people as possible, a booklet named “Osaka’s Good Livestock Products Book” has been created. Those who haven’t tried Osaka’s livestock produce yet, please don’t let this opportunity go by!
