Showcase Your Company and Products Without Traveling

FOODEX JAPAN is the largest annual food and beverage tradeshow in Asia and has been a highly successful trade event since its debut in 1976 serving not only Japan but many lucrative Asian markets. Over 80,000 professional visitors attended FOODEX 2019, including over 10,900 from Korea, Taiwan, China, Thailand, and Hong Kong.

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.

U.S. Food & Agricultural Product Imports to Japan, By the Numbers

  • U.S. Consumer Ready Foods - US$6.3 billion (2020)
  • U.S. Processed Foods - US$2.5 billion (2020)

USDA’s Agricultural Trade Office or ATO in Osaka reports that Japan is now the fourth largest market for U.S. exporters of food and agricultural products.
