On Fri, June 7, Hokusei North America’s CEO Taro Tomita will speak during a brewing industry seminar to

be held in conjunction with the Hood to Fuji Oregon-Japan collaboration beer festival.  Held a day before the actual festival, the seminar will be attended by a number of professionals from the Japanese beer industry, including brewers, importers, retailers, beer bar owners, and journalists.

In front of this audience, Tomita-san will briefly introduce Hokusei North America, Hokusei Products (Japan) and its upcoming imports of Oregon Fruit Products’ (Salem, Ore.) fruit purees for fermentation.  Along with Oregon Fruit Products, it is Hokusei’s goal to grow both the Japanese craft beer market and trade between Oregon and Japan.
