On December 7, an exhibition and sale of products from Fukushima was held at the Head Office Building in Shinagawa, Tokyo, as part of the MHI Group's activities to support the region's recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami disaster.
Though the exhibition was open only during the lunch break and after regular work hours, large numbers of Group employees who work in the building thronged the venue to buy products. Some items sold out just during lunchtime, and by the end of the day nearly everything had been sold. Total sales substantially exceeded the target.
The MHI Group will continue to undertake an array of activities to support recovery in the disaster-hit region, which even now continues to suffer the effects of groundless rumors concerning the safety of its local products.
The exhibition included many varieties of Fukushima's local sake.
Executive Vice President Kadokami was among the eager buyers.
