Nuclear fears contaminate sales for Tohoku farmers

TOKYO — Mayumi Kurasawa’s seaweed company saw seven of its factories swept away by the March 11, 2011 tsunami. Nearly two years later, sales continue to be eroded by consumer fears over nuclear contamination.

“Our seaweed is checked every day, and I guarantee you that it’s safe,” she told AFP during a recent visit to Tokyo to promote the company she works for, Kawashu. “But we are selling two-thirds less than before Fukushima.”

Like many farmers in the Tohoku region in northeast Japan, Kurasawa is struggling to sell her produce to a wary population that remains unconvinced by reassurances of food safety.
