COFCO Japan Co., Ltd. (formerly known as HOCHU Trade Co., Ltd) was founded in Tokyo, Japan in March 1987 and has developed for over 30 years. In the initial stage of its establishment, relying on COFCO Corporation’s export advantages in grain, oil and food, COFCO Japan Co.,Ltd has played its geographical advantages to widen business network and built stable trading relationships with Japanese trading companies and wholesalers. While selling soybean, corn, rice, food ingredients, wines and spirits produced in China to Japan, the company has expanded its operation scale and acted as a window to Japan for Chinese agricultural products, thus developing sound corporate reputation in the market.
As China’ foreign trade system develops, China and Japan have opened wider in trading sector and channels. In line with the new situation, COFCO Japan Co.,Ltd has been constantly exploring localized operation and innovating business models in processed meat and food ingredients and has accumulated experience in independent operation and human resources.
As China’s consumption model has been upgraded in recent years, the market scale for imported food in China has shown significant growth. To seize new business opportunities and meet COFCO’s strategy for imported food, COFCO Japan Co.,Ltd, as the purchasing platform in the Asia-Pacific region under COFCO Womai.com, has actively looked for suitable food resources. It has built a new food supply network covering Japan, Korea, China Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia and other countries. The purchasing commodities cover snacks, spices, rice & flour, wines & spirits, beverages, bottled water, fruit juice, coffee, seafood, and fresh fruits. The scale of operation has been further expanded and COFCO Japan Co.,Ltd is on its way to become an expert in imported food in the Asia-Pacific region.
Over the past 30 years, COFCO Japan Co.,Ltd has gone through several development stages including bulk commodity trade, trading and wholesale of processed meat and food ingredients, development of overseas supply chain and trading service for Chinese imported food. It now has four major business sectors including Food Trade, Bulk Grains and Oils Trade, Food Ingredients Trade as well as Processed Meat Trade. In the future, the company will constantly seek new innovations to echo the market changes, and make continuous efforts to connect the food market in China and abroad, and become a market leader of imported food in China.
