Restart FOOMA

Japan, Asia, and the world are all facing demands to transform
societies in a way that accommodates the “new normal.”
A wave of change is sweeping through the consumer food environment,
as well as the food industry that has ushered in the evolution of dining styles.
As the world faces a turning point, we will launch a “restart” in 2022
and transform FOOMA JAPAN into a base for innovation.
We will also launch innovative projects that meet the demands
of this new era and satisfy everyoneʼs expectations.

Organizer's Message

I would like to express my deepest sympathies to all those who have been affected by the spread of COVID-19. I truly hope that the situation will be brought under control as soon as possible and that everyone remains safe and in good health.
Our 45th FOOMA exhibition, FOOMA JAPAN 2022, will be held at Tokyo Big Sight for four days from June 7th (Tue.) to June 10th (Fri.). It will be our first FOOMA JAPAN exhibition in three years.
The central theme of FOOMA JAPAN 2022 is “Restart FOOMA.” “Restart” refers to overcoming COVID-19 and rebooting Japanʼs economic development, rebooting FOOMA JAPAN as a large-scale exhibition at Tokyo Big Sight, and rebooting through various plans for becoming the No.1 food manufacturing exhibition in the world and offering innovative proposals appropriate for the “new normal” we live in. I hope you enjoy the exhibition and that you take advantage of the presentations on cutting-edge technologies for the new era. In addition, to further promote the technological development of all exhibitors, we have established the “FOOMA Award” to recognize the results of outstanding technological research and development. We will contribute to the development of Japan's food machinery industry and the food industry as a whole.
At FOOMA JAPAN, we will actively seek to attract as many attendees as possible through virtual and web-based promotions and various media strategies. As a comprehensive exhibition that brings together state-of-the-art products, technologies, and services that respond to the diversity array of dining situations, including labor-saving measures, automation, sterilization, robotics, AI, and food hygiene management, letʼs use this opportunity to work together and pave the way for a new start for the entire food industry.
I look forward to welcoming all of you to FOOMA JAPAN 2022, where our eyes are focused on the new era to come.

I would like to express my deepest sympathies to all those who have been affected by the spread of COVID-19. I truly hope that the situation will be brought under control as soon as possible and that everyone will be safe and in good health. FOOMA JAPAN 2022 will launch anew at Tokyo Big Sight under the theme of “Restart FOOMA.” FOOMA JAPAN aims to become an event where visitors can find solutions to any issue related to food manufacturing. It is the mission of the Exhibition Executive Committee to make FOOMA JAPAN an all-encompassing food manufacturing exhibition that maximizes the appeal of exhibitorsʼ products and services and allows attendees to discover their ideals with regard to food manufacturing.
In 2022, FOOMA JAPAN will accelerate new initiatives to provide an unprecedented level of value. In addition to upgrading the virtual exhibition that was given a trial run in 2021, we will also introduce the FOOMA App, which will offer various information to attendees both during and prior to the exhibition. Moreover, we will establish the FOOMA Award to recognize outstanding R&D achievements and create the Startup Zone as one piece of our open innovation program. These and other initiatives will all improve the value the exhibition provides.
We will strive harder than ever to fulfill our responsibility to transform this event from the largest international food industry exhibition in Asia into the No.1 comprehensive food manufacturing exhibition in the world, creating an exhibition that gathers together all sorts of food manufacturing solutions and maximizes results for all involved. We look forward to your participation.
