Maintenance of Spinach Supply

Concerning to the accident of Tokyo Electric Power Company’s Fukushima Nuclear Power Station, radioactive substances whose level was above the provisional standard of Food Sanitation Law were detected from the spinach produced at Ibaraki prefecture. Then, Ibaraki prefecture government announced that spinach shipment from the whole Ibaraki area will be restrained for the time being.
As a result, it is presumed that there will be difficulty in stable supply of spinach for consumers. In order to maintain spinach supply, MAFF issued a letter requesting the following cooperation to ZEN-NOH .
- Front-loaded shipment of spinach from the area other than Ibaraki
- Shipment promotion of non standardized spinach from the area other than Ibaraki.
