Olive Oil Kansai International Exhibition (hereinafter OLIVE OIL KANSAI) which was successfully ended last October, 2016 and acquired 78 names from 13 nations will be organized again for the second time in 2017.
Our Kansai region which includes the cities of Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe and so on are well-known as the epicenter of new food culture and are paid much more attention in the world as the one of the highest food consumption area. Especially, the place of the exhibition, the city of Osaka has been known for a long time as the‘Food Capital of Japan’, which can be gathered a variety of foodstuffs not only all over Japan but also all over the world.
Against this background, continuing the organization of OLIVE OIL KANSAI in Osaka, the 'Food Capital of Japan' which is the one of the world largest olive oil importing countries will be quite meaningful to provide the exhibitors the opportunity for the direct access into the Japanese market and optimize the higher value, product quality and attractiveness on the olive oil.
In 2017, we expect more numbers of the high qualitative professional visitor will visit and more and more fruitful business talks will be made between the exhibitors and visitors onsite than those in 2016. As our original programs of special seminars presented by prominent figures in the international olive oil industry or the visitor guided tasting tour which our selected professionals navigated the visitors to provide a practical overview and taste at each exhibitor booth were highly popular in 2016, OLIVE OIL KANSAI 2017 will expand our varietal and practical formats. Then OLIVE OIL KANSAI 2017 will lead and stimulate the international olive oil market.
We look forward to your participation at OLIVE OIL KANSAI 2017.
