Grain, Food Soybeans & Oilseeds
In the grain business, we sell an assortment of grain including rice, wheat, and corn primarily in Japan and Asia. Notably, we have one of the largest trade volumes of corn for grits. Kanematsu contributes to stable food supply in Japan through its ownership of grain silos in Kashima and Moji.
The Soybean business operates a soybean sorting plant in the U.S. state of Ohio and has achieved integrated traceability, from agricultural fields to the customer, through seed development and direct farming contracts with farms. Kanematsu meets the various needs for edible soybeans by selling safe and secure non-genetically-modified (non-GMO) soybeans brands in Japan and overseas. Kanematsu also sells oilseeds that have undergone integrated traceability management starting at the farm.
