Olympic World Sponsors obvious include but are not specific to Japan. Not surprisingly, no Japanese food companies are among the world sponsors. The only food companies are US based: McDonald's, P&G, and Coca Cola. More interesting to me though is the fact that there is only one Japanese company, Panasonic. I suppose Panasonic sponsorship would exclude the other Japanese electronics companies, but if I were head of sponsorships, I would certainly want a major automobile company like Toyota on board.
