Fukushima produce promoted in London

Farmers from Fukushima Prefecture have showcased the safety of their produce at an event in London.

A Japanese festival called Japan Matsuri was held on Saturday in the British capital's Trafalgar Square.

Deputy Mayor of London Victoria Bowick spoke at the opening. She congratulated Japan on Tokyo's successful bid to host the 2020 Olympic Games.

Crowds thronged to 50 stalls selling Japanese foods.

Fukushima residents sold rice and fresh peach and apple juice.

The products had labels showing they passed tests for radioactive substances.

Head of a Japanese resident group Yoshio Mitsuyama said he wanted to promote the safety of Fukushima products in a city that attracts people from around the world. He said he was happy the products sold well.

The organizers say some proceeds will be used for children in Fukushima who have lost their parents.

I heard rumor that the USDA organic label will now be allowed to be used on Japan organic products.

I have not confirmed this yet, if any of you have a link to verify it please share.

Thanks in advance. 8-)
