Overview and Concept

Greetings from the Organizers and Concept

The Organic Lifestyle EXPO will be held for the 8th time next year in 2023. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the exhibitors and sponsors and the support of all concerned parties for the 7th event. Since the year before last, various effects caused by the new corona infection have occurred worldwide, and the 7th holding during the state of emergency has been threatened, but we managed to hold it in September by making full use of infection control and online.
2021 was also a year of great change. It is said that Japan has finally taken a step toward organic standards by launching the "Green Food System Strategy" formulated as a country in May 2021 and the "Japan Organic Conference" launched by the private sector.
For the 8th edition, we would like to build an organic lifestyle business that will be useful. The venue will be the same as last year, using the exhibition space of 6,000 m2 on the 4floors of the Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center Hamamatsuchokan.

The Japan Organic Conference will be held at the same time, and keynote speeches and seminars will be held at the same time. The entire industry will work together to build a nationally representative organic lifestyle convention with the goal of promoting domestic organic lifestyle business and achieving sustainable development goals. We look forward to your visit.



The organizer team (Japan Food Trust Project, LOHAS World and ABC Enterprises/GON(Global Organic Network)) supported by advisers and major stakeholders developed a concept based on the following considerations:

・ Global organic movement, markets and trends
・ Current market situation in Japan and specific needs
・ Covering a wide range of products for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle
・ Bringing producers, distributors, consumers and other stakeholders together (B2B2C)
・ Extensive seminar and event program before and during OLE
・ Cooperation with many relevant associations, organizations and groups
・ Support from media and sponsors

■ Exhibitors and visitors appreciated the benefits of B2B2C

As anticipated by the organizers, a convenient location in central Tokyo attracted on both days many business people and consumers. Both groups welcomed the B2B2C concept which is suitable for Japan. Visitors also appreciated the wide range of exhibited natural/organic products beyond food and beverages as well as the side program with many seminars and events. These factors in their combination resulted in high satisfaction levels among exhibitors and visitors (see closing releases and reports 2016-2022).

Purpose  Information and communication for a better understanding and development of the organic movement and lifestyle.
