Globally Developing an Exceptional Livestock Production & Sales Business
Overseas, we operate both Rangers Valley (a cattle raising business) in Australia, and Creekstone Farms Premium Beef (a beef processing company) in the United States. By using Australia and the United States as a sort of base of operations, we are strengthening our global strategies in order to respond to the growing demand for premium beef, especially black angus beef, around the world. Also, in China, Marubeni is developing a joint venture for integrated production broilers by employing experience and knowledge cultivated in Japan, and expanding production of poultry and processed poultry products.
In Japan, Marubeni owns companies like Nippon Chunky (broiler breeder) and Wellfam Foods Corporation (broiler & pork production and sales), and sells reliable and safe meat products, founded in strictly regulated management practices, to bulk retailers, restaurants, and meat processing makers.
Grain trading company with grain collection, sales, and export business in the U.S. and Brazil, and an expansion of sales worldwide with a focus on Asia
We are one of the top class Sogo Shosha in terms of grain volume handled. Through our worldwide grain procurement system centered in North and South America and our worldwide sales activities, we have built a system that not only ensures a stable supply of internationally competitive grains to Japan, but also provides a flexible supply to meet the increasing demand for grains around the world. In the United States, which is the world's largest grain producer and exporter, we have Columbia Grain, a grain collection and marketing company, and Pacificor, an export terminal on the West Coast of the United States, to meet the demand for grain in Japan and other countries around the world with detail. At the forefront of grain collection, we also sell fertilizers and seeds, and all group companies work closely together to ensure a stable supply of grain to North America. In Brazil, the second largest grain producer and exporter after the U.S., we own Terlogs, which has grain storage and shipping facilities. Terlogs is connecting increased demand from China, Southeast Asia, and other emerging economies with Brazil's production expansion to ensure stable and timely grain exports.
