The 16th round of Biofach Japan was scheduled for 10 - 13 March 2020. It would have taken place at the Biofach Japan Pavilion at Foodex Japan in Chiba, Tokyo. Now the event is cancelled due to the Coronavirus.
A total of 14 exhibitors, including companies from Egypt, Germany, France, Italy and Pakistan, were to display organic products at Asia’s largest food and beverage trade fair. The exclusive pavilion was to give the
expected 85,000 trade visitors the opportunity to get to know certified organic products from all around the world and establish contacts for the booming organic sector in the Asian market.
Now, Japan Management Association, the organiser of Foodex Japan 2020, has officially taken the decision to cancel the event. "This decision has been made based on the announcement of the Japanese government on February 26th at 1pm; The Japanese government requests event organizers to cancel huge events held in Japan to prevent further infection from the Coronavirus (COVID-19)", it says on the website.
