Mitsui & Co. has a long history of development in Brazil. The predecessor of Mitsui & Co. (Brasil) S.A., Bussan Brasileira Importação e Exportação Ltda. was established on August 16, 1960.

From the latter half of the 1960s through the 1970s, the peak of Japanese corporate expansion in Brazil, Mitsui & Co. expanded and developed its business in Brazil and began importing iron ore from Companhia Vale do Rio Doce (CVRD). In 1967, the company name was changed to Mitsui Brasileira Importação e Exportação Ltda.

After the "lost decade" of the 1980s in which the Brazilian economy faltered, the company name was changed to Mitsui Brasileira Importação e Exportação S.A. in 1999 and then again in July 2008 to the anglicized Mitsui & Co. (Brasil) S.A. The Brazilian economy is now beginning to usher in a new age of expansion and development, and with the eyes of the world focused on the country's ascendancy, we are working day and night to make our mark in Brazil's history.
