Message from the President

We create better lives globally by contributing to significant advances in Food and Health and by working for Life.

Ajinomoto Trading, Inc. was founded in 1954 as Shin-Nippon Commerce, Inc. for the purpose of exporting umami seasoning known as “AJI-NO-MOTO®” and other food products produced by our parent company, Ajinomoto Co., Inc. In the more than 60 years since, we have established ourselves as a core part of the trading business of the Ajinomoto Group by developing markets throughout southwestern Asia, exporting machinery and equipment to overseas plants, procuring raw materials overseas, importing products and materials into Japan and more as our parent company has extended its global reach.

In recent years, our business fields have expanded to include the handling of products such as foodstuff materials, food products, life support, healthcare, machinery for food processing factories, and packaging, as well as the procurement of ingredients, product development, and outsourcing of manufacturing and sales for our customers. In addition, we are leveraging our experience and expertise to expand BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) business in which we manage our customers importing and exporting, as well as their supply and demand. And the provision of unique services and products by our affiliates in Thailand and Canada has enabled us to respond to an even broader range of customer needs.

As a core company of the Ajinomoto Group, we intend to continue being a business partner providing quality work that our customers can trust.

We are sincerely grateful for your continued support.
