The 6th Edition - Innovation Technology and Solutions for New Taste, Flavour, Texture and Colour Get Together
As consumers give attention to their health, the food industry has developed technologies and solutions to create new tastes, flavours, textures, and colours.
FiT Japan features a unique ingredients technology that can create better tastes as well as solutions to keep these tastes fresh, and FiT Japan is the perfect place to promote such ingredients and technology to food and beverage manufacturers, food service providers and distributors.
FiT Japan is the first exhibition of its kind in Japan. In the food industry, the pursuit of taste is an eternal theme, and FiT Japan 2022 was the exhibition’s 5th edition, where about 100 suppliers showcased new tastes, flavors, textures and colors, in addition to the health of consumers.
Japan's ONLY exhibition for Food Safety and Quality Control
Awareness of food safety is at an all-time high in Japan, following a spate of high-profile incidents that have shaken consumer confidence in the quality and safety of manufactured food. Partly as a result of this, but also because of tightened regulations and the need to develop more innovative products in the market, investments are being made in all of the following areas: analysis and inspection, safety and hygiene, technology of powdered/liquid food, environmental technology and packaging technology. These themes come together at S-tec Japan 2023.
S-tec Japan is the only event in Japan that focuses on this highly specialized segment and provides the best opportunity to meet production, quality control and R&D professionals from food manufacturing companies.
Food Long Life Japan
Shelf life technology that helps keep food taste and quality longer
On 31 May 2019, Japan enacted a law for the reduction of food wastage. Although there is no need to mention that manufacturing and sales work together to enact measures for food loss, for the manufacturers, two countermeasures are necessary: “Reduce” and “Reuse”.
Concerning “Reuse”, the Food Recycling Law was enacted in the 2000s and amended in 2015 to increase the recycling targets according to industry type. On the other hand, to “Reduce”, or to implement food waste reduction, is the biggest priority for the industry and manufacturers are being forced to carry out this countermeasure now. To do this successfully, it is important to promote long shelf life technology, thus prolonging and maintaining the taste and quality of food.
Food Long Life Japan gathers a variety of long-shelf-life technologies for food loss reduction, and is aiming to introduce these technologies to manufacturers and sales people.
