COVID-19


As for the new coronavirus, Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has posted a Q & A about food on its website for food handlers. According to this website, so far, there has been no reported case of new coronavirus transmission through food. As long as general hygiene management measures are implemented among food handlers, including physical conditions management and frequent hand washing, at each stage of production, distribution, cooking, and sales, there is no need to be concerned about food-borne infection.

For this reason, we kindly ask business establishments handling agriculture, forestry, fisheries, and food products to be mindful of this instruction, continue to implement the general hygiene management measures, and make decisions in each individual case whether you should continue the operation or not. In cases where you cannot make confident decisions, please consult a public health center and take appropriate measures.

In addition, please refrain from imposing unreasonable transaction conditions on suppliers.
