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 trade and sales worldwide
Marubeni has the largest trading volume of grain among all of Japan’s sogo shosha, or general trading companies. With a worldwide grain procurement system mainly in North and South America, and a worldwide sales network, Marubeni provides a reliable supply of grain at competitive price to the global market where grain demand is increasing as well as to Japan.
Operating export facilities of grain in Brazil
Marubeni owns Terlogs Terminal Maritimo Ltda. (“Terlogs”) as a subsidiary, which operates grain storage and shipping facilities at the port of Sao Francisco do Sul, Santa Catarina, in Brazil, which is the second largest producing and exporting country of grain next to the U.S. Terlogs connects the increasing demands of emerging nations such as China and Southeast Asian countries, with the expanding production of Brazil, thereby realizing steady and timely grain exports.
Nationwide placement of grain silos for a stable, large-volume supply
The Marubeni Group has seven grain import silos across Japan including Pacific Grain Terminal Co., Ltd. (“Pacific Grain Terminal”). These import silos enable efficient supply to the neighboring feed plants. Marubeni also invests in the leading oil crushing company, The Nisshin OilliO Group, and provides them with raw materials.
