At this meeting, the participants exchanged information and opinions on the further development of the Japanese food industry, the overseas development of Japanese food from Japan, and the government's support for the overseas development of Japanese food, as well as trends and issues in agri-food tech, as the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has begun to focus on the food tech field, including the launch of the Food Tech Public-Private Partnership Council. The participants exchanged information and opinions on trends and issues in agri-food tech. The participants also had the opportunity to experience new food tech-related materials developed with new technologies, such as a tasting of shigure-ni-niki, a new material made from jackfruit called "fruit meat".
