FOODEX JAPAN is the largest annual food and beverage tradeshow in Japan and has been a highly successful trade event since its debut in 1976 serving not only Japan but many lucrative Asian markets.
Japan has proven to be an appealing and profitable market for U.S. companies for many years with food industries that are well-developed and innovative in all sectors, including, retail, food service, food processing, and distribution.
There are tremendous opportunities for U.S. exporters willing and able to follow the strict Japanese product regulations and keep up with the latest trends in this market. Under the U.S. – Japan Free Trade Agreement (“USJTA” effective January 1, 2020) nearly 90% of U.S. food and agricultural imports into Japan are either duty free or receive preferential tariff access.
