MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Media OutReach – 7 October 2021 – Hightower J. Foods Corp. will hold the Tokyo Islands Seafood Fair, a Tokyo marine produce proposal session for the restaurant industry, etc., in Manila, online on October 21, 2021 (Thu.).
While Tokyo is the largest city in Japan, it’s also home to nature-rich islands like the Izu and Ogasawara Archipelagoes. Rare, high-quality fish like splendid alfonsino are caught around these islands in the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
At the event, top chefs in the Philippines will cook fresh, air-transported marine produce from Tokyo and deliver original dishes exclusively to participants.
In addition to original dishes, we’ll also send a recipe book full of culinary delights made using Tokyo’s marine produce and broadcast video clips introducing the marine produce of the Tokyo islands on the same day. Savor the dishes made using fish from the Tokyo islands and discover their charm through this event.
