Alberta products showcased in Japan

Alberta Agriculture and Forestry says a visit to the FOODEX Japan show last month was a success.

A delegation from seven companies and organizations walked the show to gather market intelligence and sales leads at the largest food and beverage trade show in the Asia Pacific.

Working with Canada Pork International, Canada Beef, and Edmonton Economic Development, a promotional booth profiled Alberta pork, beef, chocolate, bakery, edible oils, grains, water, and processed meat products.

Japan was Alberta’s third-largest destination for agriculture and agri-food exports in 2015, with exports totalling $1.1 billion.
