Food Quality Management Takes Centre Stage At Food Japan 2018, functional food, halal products and innovative technology continues to gain traction in Southeast Asia

Food Japan 2018 returns to Singapore for the seventh year running, to bring together F&B businesses from across Japan and Southeast Asia. The exhibition is ASEAN’s most prolific showcase of authentic Japanese food and beverage (F&B) products, culinary techniques and novel technologies.

Formerly known as Oishii Japan, Food Japan 2018 will be held at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre Hall 401-402 from 25 to 27 October 2018.

The three day long exhibition will see food quality management take center stage at Food Japan 2018. The superior quality of Japanese F&B products, which are subject to rigorous quality checks and produced using advanced food safety techniques will receive the spotlight.

Nippon Suisan Kaisha, a subsidiary of NISSUI Group, utilises a vertically-integrated operation to ensure the safety of its marine produce such as  kurose buri (yellowtail) and pollock roe. Tsukuba Dairy Products adopts an integrated hygiene management program, along with hazard analysis and quality management certifications to reduce the risks of cross-contamination in the processing of its dairy and nut products.

With more and more consumers turning to healthier alternatives, the event will showcase key exhibitors responding to this demand.

Over 200 exhibitors are expected to attend Food Japan 2018, which will play host to specialities from various Japanese prefectures. 35 percent are participating for the first time, bringing fresh seasonal produce, delectable ingredients, sake and cutting-edge Japanese technology to the region.

“Japan’s agriculture, forestry and fishery exports surpassed JPY435 billion in the first half of 2018, a significant increase over the same period last year – this suggests consumer trust towards Japanese food export is on the rise. To maintain this momentum, we want to highlight key trends such as food quality, functional food and halal products at Food Japan 2018 to further cement Japan’s leadership position in the food and beverage industry in Southeast Asia,” said Mr Masanao Nishida, Director of Food Japan.

The organisers of Food Japan will also be launching a brand new service by collaborating with various exhibitors to provide consolidated shipment for buyers. This value-added service aims to streamline logistics for purchases made at the event, providing greater convenience to buyers.
