■ What is LEKKER AFRICA?
LEKKER AFRICA operates an online shop and media for African miscellaneous goods and South African wine under the mission of "delicious, fun and lucrative life". Among them, we are cultivating and importing brands locally under the theme of "Modern Africa".
I was involved in the African business at Toyota Motor Corporation, a new graduate, and had the opportunity to visit 13 African countries, including those stationed in South Africa. At that time, I realized that there are rich African cultures and attractive products, and I wanted to convey this to Japan purely.
I also felt that it would not be easy for African countries to develop in the manufacturing industry, which already has a production base all over the world. Through the activities of LEKKER AFRICA, we would like to make an impact on the local market by gradually opening the Japanese market to Africa.
"LEKKER" is a South African word that means delicious and fun. I feel that it is a wonderful word that expresses that the culture of enjoying delicious meals and happy times with friends and family has taken root locally. We will strive to update the image of Africa and deliver a lucky time through wonderful African products that are not known in Japan.
