Procurement & Sales Division

Procuring meats from all over the world as a trading company

The Procurement & Sales Division serves as a trading company within HANEWFOODS GROUP, procuring livestock products from producers in Japan and around the globe.

Our division consists of two companies: HANEWFOODS, which negotiates trade deals with international exporters and purchases their products; TMC, which is responsible for the procedural aspects of HANEWFOODS GROUP's trade in livestock products. HANEWFOODS purchases not only beef, pork and chicken, but also a wide range of meat such as lamb and horse meat from the US, Oceania and EU countries. TMC is not only in charge of import trade procedures for those meats HANEWFOODS purchased, but also for live cattle and horses, bee products such as honey and royal jelly, and export trade procedures for domestic cattle.

Domestic Production Division

Domestic Production Division

Meeting the highest standards for safety and quality

The Domestic Production Division specializes in the handling of domestic beef. Our activities completely cover all the aspects of the business, ranging from cattle raising and cargo collection to product processing and sales. We are responsible for the sale of 33,200 cows and 10,500 tons of meat per year.

Being involved in the entire production process from the cattle farm to end products, our knowledge of the food production cycle is our greatest strength.

Whether its fattening high-quality breeds of cattle, processing meat into a finished product, or performing sales, all our specialized departments look at the individual qualities of each animal to make products that we cherish and carry out our business.

In handling domestic beef, good communication with the breeders is key. No product would reach the market without it. HANEWFOODS GROUP's Domestic Production Division has been a mediator between breeders and distributors for quite some time. We continue to support the development of the industry with the next step of the production process in mind.

What sets us apart is our wide range of operations, which includes cattle raising, production, processing, sales, and administration. Collaborating with all members in these operations to perform tasks, our division is a rewarding workplace for employees.

The Processing Division currently operates 8 meat-processing facilities throughout Japan. Every year, we process 30,500 tons of meat. Our operations include the production of frozen meat products and premium ham and sausages. Among our customers are large retailers, restaurant chains, and department stores.

Our divisions plays an important role in connecting production sites to retailers. We use both foreign and domestic ingredients to create products for large retailers, fast food chains, and restaurant chains, and we even provide suggestions for their menus.

At each processing center, we have a curriculum to educate employees on the basics of food processing, bacteriology, hygiene, and regulations related to food. In order to meet our customers' expectations, we examine standards for each process and take other measures to always ensure reliable products with high quality. This reliable quality control enables us to gain an edge on our competition.

Our employees are well aware of the responsibilities and duties they must perform. They are action-oriented individuals who respond flexibly to any issues that may arise, thriving in a workplace that promotes the mutual development of knowledge.

Based on their ambition, some of our employees become process managers at early stages in their careers, and all of them are characterized by a strong willingness to take on new challenges.
