Food Company

For the Next Generation Becoming a Leader in the Asian Food Industry

The Food Company consists of three divisions: the Provisions Division, the Fresh Food Division, and the Food Products Marketing & Distribution Division.
The goal of this division company is to become the leading company in the global food industry.
Accordingly, the Food Company is developing a high value-added value chain that organically links customer-driven food resources development, food resources supply, product processing, midstream distribution, and retail on a global scale with a focus on Japan, China and Asia. Further, throughout that system we are upgrading controls for food safety even further to ensure trust and reliability.

Using supply locations in North America, Asia, Australia, Central and South America and elsewhere, we procure foodstuffs such as grains, ingredients for animal feed, oilseed, vegetable oil, sugar, fruit juice, coffee beans and livestock products for third party countries with the focus on Japan and Asia.

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.

We will pursue a strategy rooted in customer needs, focusing on the retail segment such as FamilyMart, using the information obtained from customers as the key to developing a high value-added value chain involving everything from product development and manufacturing to the supply and procurement of ingredients.
