Food & Beverage sector, preparation for entering the Japanese market and practical tips for FOODEX trade show

In 2022, Enterprise Estonia exhibited its first national stand in Foodex 2022. Although Estonian companies were not able to travel due to the corona restrictions, Enterprise Estonia was able to organize the stand with support of our partners. As of today, the Japanese government has lifted most of corona restrictions and the border is open now. Enterprise Estonia is now organising participation of Foodex 2023. Before entering the Japanese market, there are many things that you should be aware of.

Enterprise Estonia, in cooperation with FFT International BV, invites companies to participate in the informative seminar “How to enter the Japanese market in the food industry”.
