In recent years it has been clear to see the uprising of the JPD Koi Food range, in the UK, Europe and most importantly Japan.
Having our own food range, naturally we are curious to learn what our Far Eastern friends feed their koi. Given that Japan is the heart and soul of our hobby, we take every opportunity to learn from the masters.
Breeders, hobbyists and dealers in Asia take the JPD food range very seriously indeed, and as they say, proof is in the pudding. Below is a list of breeders in Japan that use the JPD food range.
Narita Koi Farm
Kurihara koi farm
Migita koi farm
Tani Fish Farm
Anet koi farm
*the list continues at the end of this post.
As you can see, it would have been quicker to say who ISN’T using JPD Foods. Among the famous breeder’s names a few certainly stand out, however the name “Narita Koi Farm” is of special note. In recent years Narita Koi Farm has dominated the show scene in Japan. Narita Koi Farm is a dealer/wholesaler that specialise in sourcing and caring for high quality show koi. The farm buy many fish from breeders all over the country. For a number of years now, at the All Japan Koi Show and All Japan Young Koi the farm have conditioned a 1/3 of all entries! In 2016 the All Japan Koi Show saw 1800+ entries, Narita Koi Farm handled 600+ of these koi! Of course we can’t forget the numerous Grand Champion titles the farm has won with fish conditioned at their facility.
In Japan we have spent a lot of time with Ryuki Narita and his team of staff. Not only are they confident in the JPD food range, they swear by it ! The use of JPD food has enabled Narita Koi Farm (along with many others) to achieve all round great results. Gaining excellent growth during the summer months, conditioning throughout the cooler months leading up to shows as well as maintaining koi for general sale.
