Meros is a Tokyo-based boutique consulting company focused on international trade in food and agriculture. We have an office in the EU and work globally on challenges throughout the agriculture value chain, from seed to table.
We work with both private companies and government agencies from around the world to develop the food systems and agribusinesses of the future. Our clients include food manufacturers, trading companies, agritech and investment firms as well as government agencies from various countries, such as JICA, MAFF and USDA. We are committed to exploring and expanding economic opportunities in global food, agriculture and natural resource markets in Asia and the world.
Our head office is located in central Tokyo with easy access to several subway stations. Meros company culture emphasizes open and frank communication, team work and deep curiosity about complex global issues.
We work in a flexible, bilingual environment with an entrepreneurial spirit. As a small company, everyone has a chance to be involved in a variety of projects and take initiative to find the most efficient and effective ways to solve clients challenges.
A typical week at Meros might find us meeting with clients in Tokyo to discuss their business challenges or talking with government officials about trade policy priorities. We may be making video conference calls with counterparts in Vietnam to plan next month’s field work, preparing for industry interviews with importers or farmers in the EU or analyzing and writing about the dynamics of a new Japanese trade policy.
Our four founders are women with a deep commitment to building a diverse team. We deeply believe that a team with a diversity of backgrounds, experience and opinions will lead to the most creative and insightful solutions for our clients.
We are looking for people who share our core values:
Passion for learning new things drives our company. We aim to learn new things, learn more, learn deeper, revise assumptions and constantly improve. Come teach the rest of us what you know!
We are the sum of all we have done in our lives, in and out of work; and all that we have experienced brings value to Meros. We aim to create a culture of intense productivity and flexible support without hierarchy. We work hard, play hard and rest hard. (Come check out our craft gin collection!)
Whether exploring a new country or jumping into a new topic, we pride ourselves in facing the unexpected and finding a solution. Being open-minded helps us discover good ideas from sources we don’t expect – and these unexpected moments make the best stories to share later!
