OLIVE JAPAN has 2 core events. The International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition is held during April and late May (June 4, 2020) and OLIVE JAPAN SHOW 2020 (formerly known as the “Olive Marche”), held in mid July, is an annual comprehensive open-air event that brings olive oil producers and their products together with consumers and the trades.
- OLIVE JAPAN International Olive Oil Competition – around 800 olive oil participated, upscale, the largest olive oil competition in Asia and Oceania region. The most quality oriented olive oil competition in the world.
- OLIVE JAPAN SHOW – Venue of the Show, FutakoTamagawa is up-scale, but enjoys proximity to major parks and the Tama River with its broad, wide-open banks. For a Tokyo suburb the area also has a high percentage of green spaces such as smaller parks and tree-lined avenues. Because it is an aspirational area, it is the perfect place to host an event that brings olives and olive oil to the urban life style of modern Japanese people.
- In addition to directly interacting with consumers and influencers in the food world, OLIVE JAPAN provides a precious opportunity to communicate the potential of the Japanese market to international businesses, and support promotional activities to help these businesses expand their presence in Japan.
- The organizer is the Olive Oil Sommelier Association of Japan(OSAJ), Japan’s sole professional organization for training and certifying olive oil experts, which is independent from any commercial body of the olive and olive oil.
