In the Food (Commodity) Division, we are working to maximize our value by strengthening the value chain management (VCM). This comprehensively manages everything from production and procurement of raw materials to transportation and processing as well as distribution and retailing of final products in order to meet rising consumer's awareness and needs on food supply and safety. We have established bases in the primary producer countries to procure agricultural, marine, and livestock products and supply such products to processing companies, and sell these processed products to processing companies where demand exists further down the value chain. We have also established processing bases such as Indiana Packers Corporation (pork processing plant) in the U.S. and Toyo Reizo CO., Ltd. (processing and sales of marine products) in order to secure traceability and thus contribute to the enhancement of food safety.
In the Foods (Commodity) Division, we are making efforts to strengthen overseas procurement and processing bases to meet market needs, which requires the product to be both safe and price competitive, and to secure food resources. In the future we aim to broaden the business base of subsidiaries in Japan (such as ingredient processors and manufacturers) to strengthen the manufacturing function in Japan. We will push ahead with strategies to broaden and strengthen the value chain both in Japan and abroad by leveraging our know-how and expertise and actively participate in business opportunities in Asia, which is expected to show further growth.
