Organizer's Message

Yukio Okawara

The Japan Food Machinery
Manufacturers’ Association

The Japan Food Machinery Manufacturers' Association has contributed to the development of the food machinery industry throughout the years. Among its initiatives, its most significant project has been FOOMA JAPAN.
 FOOMA JAPAN 2024, the exhibition’s 47th iteration, will be held at Tokyo Big Sight for four days from June 4 (Tue.) to June 7 (Fri.), 2024, based on the theme of "Breakthrough FOOMA."
 The food industry faces a variety of social issues besides providing food safety and security, such as reducing plastic waste, addressing a deepening labor shortage, and meeting consumers’ diverse needs. For the food machinery industry to maintain a sustainable industrial base, it is essential to accurately capture the trends in the industry and play a role in enriching food life and reducing environmental impact, all while meeting the needs of food production sites, which include automation, labor-saving measures, and cost reduction. The theme of the event embodies a determination that FOOMA JAPAN, having had a breakthrough after building on its achievements thus far, will lead exhibitors to even greater success.
 In this exhibition, we will maintain a focus on food safety and security. Along with exhibiting cutting-edge technologies such as robots and AI that realize automation and labor-saving, as well as the latest products and services, we will continue to strive for the realization of a sustainable society. We, the organizers, intend to further contribute to the development of the food machinery industry and to make this event a starting point for exhibitors' breakthroughs, with even more dedication than before.
 As our comprehensive food manufacturing exhibition gains ever-increasing attention both domestically and internationally, we look forward to having many participants join us as FOOMA JAPAN 2024 carries on the exhibition’s bold legacy.

 Having relaunched in 2022 as an innovative exhibition providing the world’s best food manufacturing solutions, and after boosting exhibiting companies’ business matchmaking in 2023, FOOMA JAPAN aims to become the undisputed champion of general food manufacturing exhibitions. In 2024, with FOOMA JAPAN as a platform pushing forward into new dimensions, our primary mission is to help exhibitors and the food industry to strive for ever-greater heights and attain significant success.
