SOFCO Seafoods engages in the manufacturing and sale of processed and pre-cooked seafood. Its mainstay product is salmon flakes.

In 2012, after the Great East Japan Earthquake, the Kamaishi Plant was newly established exclusively for producing salmon flakes. It introduced the latest manufacturing equipment to double its production capacity from what it was before the quake. Its integrated production system, which processes raw materials into final products, produces bottled products for general consumers and salmon flakes for commercial use, which are used in rice balls and other food products.

SOFCO Seafoods also engages in the import and sale of salted and vinegared mackerel, which is processed on a contract basis in China. Implementing comprehensive quality control, it distributes a variety of safe and reliable processed seafood.

Japan Best Foods Co., Ltd. produces and sells daily/prepared foods in Vietnam. Japan Best Foods has built a plant equipped with a cutting-edge automation system in Sojitz Group's Long Duc Industrial Park in Vietnam and produces and sells products to local retailers.

Vietnam’s retail industry has continued to modernize in recent years, including supermarkets and convenience stores, as the country’s economic growth brings increased spending power to consumers. However, technological innovation in the daily/prepared foods industry still lags that of other countries, and Vietnam is trying to accelerate the development of infrastructure geared towards the development of the country’s food-related markets, including retail. Japan Best Foods takes advantage of the technology of NittoBest Corporation, which holds a stake in Japan Best Foods, and the expertise that Sojitz Group has developed in Vietnam and provides innovative products and services.

In Vietnam, Sojitz Group has a food wholesaler, Huong Thuy Manufacture Service Trading Corporation, and a four-temperature logistics company, New Land Vietnam Japan Joint Stock Company. The two companies and Japan Best Foods have built a comprehensive food value chain that covers the upstream and downstream processes. Using the value chain, Sojitz Group will contribute to expanding and developing the Vietnamese market and increasing customer satisfaction in Vietnam.
