December 14, 2006 by Robert Rice

The Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center's Bird Friendly® coffee, imported by Sumitomo Corporation, featured prominently in Eco-Products 2006, the largest eco-related exhibition in Japan.

Organized by the Japan Environmental Association for Industry (JEMAI) and Nihan Keizai Shimbun, Inc. (NIKKEI), and supported by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and 14 other organizations, the event draws upwards of 150,000 people who exchange views and display products related to protecting the environment.

Among the 550 exhibitors this year was Ogawa Coffee of Kyoto, the first roaster in Japan to offer Bird Friendly® coffee to Japanese consumers. The images here show Ogawa's exhibition booth featuring its tastefully designed product lines.
