Message

Make. Connect. To the World.

On April 1, 2020, Mitsui & Co. Retail Trading Ltd. (MRT) was established by consolidating the import/export logistics services, human resources, and knowledge of the retail business of Mitsui & Co. While utilizing Mitsui & Co. group’s comprehensive strengths and global networks, we aim to further improve our services of procuring foods and food materials from all over the world and delivering those to restaurants, retailers, and food manufacturers. We will handle not only food products but also other products, expand the scope of our services, engage in product procurement and development that meets consumer demand, and provide a variety of proposals. People’s lifestyles are diversifying, with increases in the numbers of those teleworking, single households, and double-income households. People have started looking for a more convenient and easy way of eating, such as eating out or buying ready-to-eat meals. On the other hand, there have been food-related social problems, including food insufficiency, unbalanced diets, and solitary eating. We recognize that the importance of food, which supports human mental and physical health, will increase more and more. We will keep on pursuing our vision of “Create a better life for people by making attractive, reliable, and safe products and delivering those to our customers based on optimal logistics functions”. We “connect” people with other people, companies with companies, and countries with countries, “make” products and services, and communicate to our customers all over the world. Through the realization of our vision, we will contribute to the development of sustainable society and creation of happiness. We ask for your continued support.

President & CEO Masatoshi Hirai
