Ohkuraen participated ANUGA 2011 held at Cologne in Germany from 10/8 to 10/12. This exhibition is held once two years and is one of the biggest food fair in the world. Our booth was a part of JETRO JAPAN PAVILION and we introduced Kakegawa Ohkuraen deep steamed green tea. During five days, 180 countries, 155,000 visitors attended to this fair. Exhibitors were approx. 6,600 companies from 100 countries. For us, it was the second trial to join ANUGA. This time we especially explained safety of Japanese foods so that rumors of radioactivity effect caused by Fukushima Daiichi Accident could be removed from Japanese foods.
Furthermore, we introduced the news that Kakegawa tea was printed in Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung in October, 2010. The fact was that medical expense of Kakegawa people who drink deep steamed green tea was 25% less than average medical expense of Japanese people and there were many healthy and long-lived people in Kakegawa. Visitors eagerly listened explanation of Kakegawa tea. Kakegawa green tea which has deep and sweet taste with profound aroma was very popular among the visitors in ANUGA.
We will proceed to deliver our safe green tea to Europe and other countries so that people in the world can enjoy our high quality green tea.
