Mitsui & Co. (Brasil) S.A.
We belong to Nutrition & Agriculture Business Unit created in April, 2016 in order to further accelerate initiatives toward actualization in "food and agriculture" by enhancing the agility of its business unit structure. Nutrition & Agriculture Business Unit will work towards the realization of growth strategies and the expansion of Mitsui's earnings base and enhancement of its presence in each of seven Key Strategic Domains defined in the Medium-term Management Plan, while working more closely with regional business units and other Headquarter business units. Nutrition & Agriculture Business Unit covers three main business fields, Agriculture, Animal Nutrition and Food Science business field.
In Agriculture field, Mitsui is operating manufacture and sales of agrochemicals and fertilizers, global logistics services for fertilizer resources (phosphate rock) and raw materials (sulfur, sulfuric acid and fertilizer).
In Animal Nutrition field, Mitsui is operating manufacture and sales of essential amino acid (methionine), raw materials and products for feeds such as specialty products (organic minerals, enzymes and dyes).
In Food Science field, Mitsui is operating manufacture and sales of food ingredients and raw materials pharmaceutical and aromatic raw materials.
The rise in global population is impacting the structure of food demand. At the Nutrition & Agriculture Business Unit, we are making preparations to respond to an increase in demand by expanding the manufacture of essential amino acid feeds and methionine in the animal protein resources market, which forms the foundation of nutrition. In crops, we are strengthening our involvement in the vast agriculture sector extending from individual farmers to the manufacture and sales of agrochemical resources, such as the development of fertilizer resources and phosphorus ore, and global logistics services for fertilizer raw materials and sulfur/sulfuric acid. As population growth is particularly prominent among the middle-income group, we expect to see a subsequent expansion in market size and demand for delicious and healthy food. By leveraging the hybrid function of our chemicals and food businesses, we will continue to provide products that meet the diversifying needs of consumers.
Our department has been created in April, 2011 for pursuing the expansion of Agricultural Chemicals business in Latin American countries. By using our worldwide network and existing business relationship with suppliers and buyers, we are looking for further opportunities in Nutrition & Agriculture fields as mentioned above.
It is exciting and dynamic business and we hope that we would contribute to the agricultural production in the world through all of our activities in this business area.
