JAPAN, Kobe. Wagyumafia, Japan’s premier Wagyu and Kobe beef specialists, are pleased to host the first official Kobe Beef Summit with Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association from 22-28 October 2019.
The Kobe Beef Summit is the first official invitation to the international chef and media community by the Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association to gain a deeper understanding of the craftsmanship behind Japanese wagyu and Kobe beef.
Centered around the 101st Livestock Auction in Kobe, which is the only annual livestock auction for Tajima and Kobe beef, this summit looks to the next century of wagyu. It will be a profoundly unique opportunity to learn more about true, authentic wagyu and the individuals who sustain this craft.
Over seven days, participants will engage in a one-of-a-kind educational and culinary experience that celebrates the expertise and passionate work of the wagyu farmers. For the first time ever, participants will be allowed to have full access to the process of rearing such exceptional cattle: from farm, to auction through to abattoir.
With support from the Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association, participants will have unprecedented access to an event that historically has only ever been reserved for those within the famously ‘closed-door’ Kobe wagyu industry. Through farm visits and conversations with wagyu farmers and key members of the wagyu industry, the Summit will provide a holistic and meaningful look into the ecosystem of this industry.
By directly experiencing the passion and dedication from the source, attendees will gain a greater understanding and appreciation, not just of the endless versatility of this incredible product, but also the expertise required to rear the finest Kobe wagyu.
