About Japan Food Machine Expo


“Japan Food Machine Expo” is the first virtual expo providing opportunities to Kenyan business owners to explore leading Japanese food machines, known for their innovation, precision, and quality. Known as KAIZEN all over the world, productivity is highly regarded in Japanese manufacturing while maintaining high quality. Some of the leading manufactures from Japan will be in attendance to cater for the needs of food manufacturers, hotels and restaurants in Kenya.


The virtual summit consists of two parts: 3-day “Virtual Business Seminar” and the year-round “Virtual Expo.” It is a rare opportunity for Kenyan business owners to directly speak with the leading Japanese manufacturers.


“Japan Food Machine Expo” is hosted by IC Net Limited (Japan) and IC Net Trading Africa (Kenya). As one of the leading companies in bridging Kenyan and Japanese private sector, IC Net also works with the Japanese government entities such as METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry), MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery), and JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency). 


Japan Food Machine Expo believes in serving as the linkage between East African and Japanese food industries. We sincerely believe in the joint efforts of Africa and Asia to further elevate this thriving economy even during the challenging times.


Utilizing a virtual platform, we hope to offer an interactive experience and hopefully some inspiration while keeping everyone safe.
