The Food Company consists of three divisions and one department: the Provisions Division, Fresh Food Division, Food Products Marketing & Distribution Division and China Business Development Department.
The goal of this division company is to become the leading company in the global food industry.

At the Food Company, we are stepping up initiatives in production and processing through Group companies. As well as making use of the strengths of the trading company in procuring ingredients, we also cooperate in marketing.
Midstream DistributionMidstream Distribution
With ownership of food wholesalers such as ITOCHU Shokuhin Co., Ltd. and NIPPON ACCESS, Inc., we are not only top of the industry in terms of size but, as a wholesaler with high added value and fully capable of responding to diversifying needs, we expect further growth.
The Strategic Integrated System (SIS) that forms the cornerstone strategy of the Food Company takes customer needs as its starting point and uses the information obtained as the basis for actions from product development and manufacturing to the supply and procurement of ingredients. Through associations with FamilyMart and other retailers, we are building a supply and demand system based on customer needs collected from those group retailers.
