Mitsui & Co. (Brasil) S.A.
Foods & Retail
The Foods & Retail Department is engaged in businesses related to a variety of food resources and products, ranging from upstream to downstream, within, and also extending outside of Brazil.
Our current business can be mainly divided into three parts:
1) Cultivation of Crops:
In order to secure a stable supply of basic food resources, Mitsui & Co. Ltd. is now engaged in the upstream farming business through its 100% subsidiary Agrícola Xingu S.A. It is a company engaged in agribusiness, through the cultivation of crops for the production of agricultural commodities and industrial processes for cotton and soybean seeds processing.
2) Trading of Food Products:
Mitsui is engaged in the trading business of a wide variety of food products between Brazil and other countries of Latin America, Japan and the rest of the world.
3) Manufacture and Retail within the Brazilian Market:
Mitsui recognizes the emerging domestic consumer market and its huge potential in Brazil. To attend to this growing demand, we are engaged in the business of manufacturing and retailing of final food products through our 100% subsidiary Mitsui Alimentos Ltda., of which its best known brand is its coffee, Café Brasileiro. We will continue to challenge ourselves in a variety of new business fields in order not to fall behind this rapidly growing domestic market.
These are only some examples of our business. While the world continues to demand for more food every day and Brazil is the key to meet this growth, the domestic market is also very important to us. This is why Mitsui's extensive global network, synergies with our affiliated companies, clients and vast know-how accumulated through our decades of existence become crucial. Taking advantage of these unique attributes, Mitsui will continue to expand its food business, always aiming to contribute to the improvement of Brazil and the rest of the world, and to be your solution provider of choice in this dynamic world.
