The first Surimi Forum Japan was held in Tokyo on July 20-21, 2010 with the attendance of 125.  This program was established to connect Japan and the world under the name of our common language "surimi" and to celebrate the 35th anniversary of crabstick (kanikama; crab-flavored surimi seafood) in Japan.

·        Surimi Forum Japan (日本語)


OSUすり身スクールのプログラムの一環として、「すり身」という共通言語の下に日本とその他各国を結ぶ目的で第一回すり身フォーラム日本を開催します。何百年にもわたるすり身とかまぼこの長い歴史を持つ日本はすり身の主要製造国でした。1975年に、日本は世界中で生産されるすり身の95%以上を消費したと推定されています。カニ風味かまぼこ(カニカマ)の発明は、様々な世界市場へ「すり身」を紹介する足掛かりとなりました。これがすり身の世界化となるきっかけとなりました。今日では、すり身先進国として、世界中で生産される練製品の50強を日本が利用しています。このカニカマが、アジア(日本)北米ーロッパ‐ロシア‐南米の全体を一つに結ぶ重要な役割を演じたのです。この第一回すり身フォーラム日本では、カニカマの発明から35年の間に日本以外の海外で開発された製品や技術を再検証したいと思います。またこの機会に、このような素晴らしい製品を開発し、世界中で様々な練製品の賞味を可能にした貢献に対して、日本と日本の練製品業界へ向けて世界中の賞賛と敬意を表したいと思います
