Sophia University Institute of Comparative Culture presents:

The Challenge of Globalization to Japan’s Food Producers:
Analyzing food safety and security system building, and meeting international standard

Yohei Matsunobu

18:30 - 20:00, Jan. 18, 2018
Room 301, 3F, Building 10, Sophia University

In recent years, not only the trade in agricultural products but also that of processed foods has become increasingly globalized. Consequently, food safety has become a shared concern for people in every country. Efforts by businesses and governmental administration are imperative to support food safety in the modern society. Today, Japanese traditional food culture has become highly regarded abroad, yet Japan struggles to meet the common standards with the international community that will allow it to further disseminate its food culture overseas.

Yohei Matsunobu is a Visiting Professor at the Metropolitan University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Human Health Department, and a Lifetime Council Member at Cornell University. He graduated from the Law faculty, University of Tokyo, in 1960, and was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship. He worked for 30 years with the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries with a specialization in food and agriculture policies, focusing on food safety and security.
