Fukushima eyes Japan’s No. 1 position in GAP certification of safe food

The Fukushima prefectural government has decided to promote some locally produced farm, forestry and fisheries products, including rice, cucumbers, tomatoes and peaches, as priority items with the Good Agriculture Practice (GAP) food safety certification which it will seek to supply to the athletes’ village during the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. The local government intends to stage a full-fledged campaign urging major catering companies to buy Fukushima-produced food in serving athletes and other participants, starting with a business meeting with related concerns on July 19 in Tokyo.
