More than 1,000 buyers from 66 countries and regions are expected to attend the first government-backed “Japan’s Food” export fair at the Makuhari Messe convention center through Friday, at which some 20,000 items including farmed tuna, sake and halal-certified miso soybean paste from about 300 exhibitors will be displayed.
