SmileMenu will light the way through this fog by providing food allergy related information of each stores and would like to enable people with food allergies to “judge whether they can safely utilize the store”. We asked and provided support to stores such as restaurants and delicatessen to disclose their food allergy related information so that the stores could materialize their good faith and had started "SmileMenu", a food allergy compatible restaurant and take-out store search service in Jan.2020. We are so much pleased to announce that "SmileMenu" is now available in English. https://smilemenu.jp/en/ We sincerely hope that, through SmileMenu, people with food allergies, and restaurant and take-out store, will have better communication and have deeper understanding of each other, creating a place full of smiles.

Second extraordinary general meeting was held on February 8th, 2020, where our trade name would be changed from February 16th, 2020. New Name : Food Allergy Association of Japan Old Name : Food Diversity Association of Japan Having a food allergy is not special, but an individuality. We desire to create a world that can be captured in the context of diversity. Although our feelings have not changed since the beginning, we decided to change our trade name because we believe that using the term "allergy" is more intuitive and will more easily convey our purpose. We will continue to strive for a society where one can profess having food allergies, and is perceived / accepted as a very natural thing by mutual understanding and compassion of the world. We would like to ask for the continued cooperation of all concerned parties.
