Fukushima Water Awarded

Let us recall that Fukushima Prefecture on the Pacific coast of Honshu island was hit most of all by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011: the disaster led to the accident at the nuclear power plant Fukushima-1 and to the radioactive contamination of the territory. Local authorities believe that the award will help to improve the reputation of the products produced in the prefecture, because the Japanese still discredit the goods from the eastern part of the country.
