ITOCHU Enters Pork Production Business in Canada
 

Tokyo, Jan 8, 2013 (JCN) - ITOCHU Corporation has acquired a 33.4% stake (5 billion Japanese Yen scale) in HyLife Group Holdings Ltd., one of Canada's leading pork producers.

HyLife conducts an integrated production (from genetics, live production, feed mill to pork processing), primarily in Manitoba. From its integrated production system, HyLife supplies pork to markets around the world.

HyLife also supplies value-added specialty pork to the Japanese market meeting customer requirement by differentiated feeding.

Through developing various kinds of food-related businesses around the world, ITOCHU and its group companies are aiming to achieve the leading position in the international food industry.

Based on customer needs, the companies organically link the processes from the development of food resources, the supply of raw materials, production and processing and intermediate distribution through to retailing, advance and develop the global Strategic Integrated System (SIS) strategy, which promotes efficient production, distribution and marketing, and improve the management functions for food safety and security.

This investment is concluded upon understanding that HyLife expansion strategy most prioritizes markets of Japan and Asia which Itochu SIS could mutually help.

The sales of HyLife's safe, secure pork will be increased with ITOCHU's marketing network in the Asian market with a focus on China, where consumption continues to grow, as well as in the Japanese market.

Moreover, in the Chinese market, ITOCHU will expand the business with Longda Foodstuff Group, a significant partner of ITOCHU, through technical exchanges in the field of pig production.
