The international organic sector met in the Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Centre (picture) from 31 October to 2 November 2013, when 15,078 trade visitors sourced information from 188 organic companies from all over the world at the 13th BioFach Japan. Besides Japan, a total of 19 other nations showed organic products and natural cosmetics. The Philippines were present in a pavilion for the first time. The professional audience experienced the island state’s whole organic variety from the 11 co-exhibitors. In line with the motto Organic is our future there was also a new area where exclusively organic products for children were presented.
Besides the trade fair, this year’s BioFach Japan again provided a varied and informative seminar programme. The speakers included Chieko Watanabe, Managing Director of Avanti Japan, who discussed the effect of synthetic fibres on the human body and explained why organic cotton and other ecological natural fibres are healthier materials. Yukio Hattori, Japanese star chef and president of the renowned Hattori Nutrition College in Tokyo, has given presentations on organic food and health awareness for many years. He gave an exciting report on his work in informing children and young people. More information is available here.
