FOODEX JAPAN is a highly successful trade event since its debut in 1976, serving not only the Japanese food market valued at 789 billion dollars but also many profitable Asian markets including Korea, Taiwan, China, Thailand, and Hong Kong.
Japan represents one of the best opportunities in the world for US food exporters – and FOODEX is a proven entry point.

Access a large market for US exporters: Japan’s $5.08 trillion GDP makes it the world’s third-largest market and a stable trading partner for the United States. Take advantage of the perfect timing, as under the US-Japan trade agreement, nearly 90% of US food and agricultural imports into Japan are duty-free or receive preferential tariff access. Understand the business culture – Japanese buyers prefer to discover new food and beverage products at large trade shows rather than through “cold calls” or requests for introductory meetings with individual companies. FOODEX provides a platform for US exporters to meet a large number of potential importers, retailers, wholesalers, and distributors.
