Sign up now for the Outbound Trade Mission to Japan, sponsored by the Western U.S. Agricultural Trade Association and the 13 Western State Departments of Agriculture.

The trade mission takes place June 26-30 and the registration deadline is April 10, 2017. Cost is $350.

With sophisticated and affluent consumers, this key market continues to provide an excellent opportunity for Western U.S. food exporters. Japan is the largest net importer of food products in the world. With this need for imported food and the demand for high-quality U.S. consumer food products, companies should seize this opportunity to make advances in the market.

Participants will have opportunities to meet one-on-one with pre-screened buyers and decision makers from Japan looking for high-quality U.S. products, showcase and promote their products to some of Japan's most influential buyers, gain information about importer/buyer needs and preferences and participate in the WUSATA section of the Agricultural Trade Office's Product Showcase.

Suitable products include, but are not limited to: meat, seafood, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, baking mixes, food preparations, nuts, confections, sauces and spices, wine, beer and other consumer oriented items.
