We will strive to expand into new businesses, focusing on the domestic and international mail order operations and export of Japanese food in the food sector, and on the development of value-added products in the feed and fertilizer sector.
Making most of the geographical advantage of Kyushu as the gateway from/to Asia, we import for enterprises in Kyushu food materials, processed foods, fishery products, coarse feeds, livestock feed raw materials, fertilizers, etc., from all over the world including China and ASEAN countries as well as the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, and South America. We also export to the world excellent products such as a wide variety of foodstuffs and fishery products manufactured by enterprises in Kyushu.
Further, in order to engage with the rapidly growing China EC market, we have begun export trading to the Alibaba Group, which owns the world’s largest EC platform.
We will continue to contribute to the development of the foodstuff, livestock/dairying and fishery industries in Kyushu through our community-based business. As a part of this, we are determined to aggressively make investment in promising projects and businesses for fostering local industries and securing resources.
In addition, the Sojitz Group shall work together as one to perform management and verification work in detail in the selection of overseas food factories that can be trusted, production factory audits, traceability and residual agricultural chemical checks, and production observation to provide safe foods.
