In the field of food resources, we utilize our supply bases in North America, Asia, Australia, South America and elsewhere to trade for Japan and Asian countries.
It is expected that rising population would accelerate imbalance of global supply and demand of food resources. It is also expected that sophisticated consumers would pay more attention to food safety. Satisfying such needs for the supply stability and the safety of food, ITOCHU advances initiatives in producing areas, such as grain company in North America, coffee exporter in Central America and dairy producer in Oceania. In addition, ITOCHU also proactively utilize Japan's food processing knowhow in other emerging markets in Asia.
