    We aim to develop new businesses centered on Kyushu, focusing on "export of Japanese foods" in the Food sector, and "development of value-added products" in the Feed and Fertilizer sector.

    Making the most of Kyushu's geographical advantage as a gateway from/to Asia, we import food materials, processed foods, fishery products, coarse feed, livestock feed materials, fertilizers, etc. from countries all over the world such as China, ASEAN countries, the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, South America, and sell them mainly to local companies in Kyushu. At the same time, we also export Kyushu products to the world such as processed agricultural products, processed fishery products, processed livestock products, various other foods, beverages, and Japanese sake produced by local companies in Kyushu.

    We will continue to contribute to the development of the food, livestock/dairy, fishery and agriculture industries in Kyushu through our community-based business. As a part of this, we are determined to actively invest in promising business projects in order to foster local industries and secure resources.

    In addition, the Sojitz Group will work together as one to carry out detailed management and verification work in the selection of reliable overseas food factories, audits of production factories, checks of traceability and residual agricultural chemicals, observation of production, etc. to provide safe and secured food.
