Foodex is Japan's largest trade only annual food and beverage trade show.
The State Government of Victoria is seeking expressions of interest from Victorian food and beverage organisations interested in participating in a Trade Mission to Foodex Japan.
Japan is Victoria's third largest importer of Victorian food and beverage, Victoria's largest importer of dairy and third largest importer of meat and prepared foods. In April 2014, Australia and Japan signed the historic Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) which came into effect in early 2015 providing tariff reductions and an increase in duty-free quotas for a number of key food and beverage products.
Foodex provides an opportunity for Victorian companies to tap into the Japan market at this important time. Foodex is Japan's largest trade only food show and in 2016 attracted over 3,000 exhibitors from 78 countries and 76,532 visitors. Trade mission participants will be provided with a comprehensive business matching program with qualified importers, distributors and end users, and will be invited to participate in a networking event with key decision makers from the food and beverage industry.
Visit Foodex for more information.
Applications close Friday 9 December 2016.
