 Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AF) invites agri-food companies to participate in a mission to the FOODEX Japan 2019 trade show from February 28 to March 9, 2019. The mission will include exhibitor and walking program options.

FOODEX Japan is the largest food and beverage tradeshow in the Asia-Pacific. In 2018, approximately 3,466 exhibitors from 83 countries showcased their products to more than 72,000 visitors. This show is an opportunity to engage with Japanese and international buyers in the trading, food service, manufacturing, retail and other sectors.

Japan is a significant importer of agri-food products and is highly reliant on imports to fulfill domestic demand. Japan was Alberta’s third largest destination for agriculture and agri-food exports in 2017, with exports totaling $1.26 billion. There are opportunities in the Japanese market for Alberta agri-food companies, particularly suppliers of innovative, healthy and organic products. With Canada completing the necessary procedures to ratify and implement the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), now is the time for Alberta companies to expand their efforts and presence in Japan and take advantage of the growing market opportunities for agri-food products.

Space is limited and the application deadline is December 14, 2018. Read more about FOODEX Japan 2019, and for more information, contact Albert Eringfeld, manager of East Asia and Oceania with AF, at 780-415-4814.
