In recent years, the consumption of green tea is increasing worldwide. In tea-producing countries, green tea production is increasing, and global green tea distribution is becoming active. In response to the expansion of the green tea market, Japan has made efforts to export green tea to overseas markets, and further export expansion is expected in the future.

At the “World Green Tea Conference 2019”, we invite international players from tea industry representatives and distributors, they report the latest situation of green tea distribution, and discuss the future prospects for global green tea market expansion.
