Mitsui Food, Inc
Our company was originally founded in 1953, as S. Schonfeld and Company. Mitsui & Co., Ltd. saw incredible opportunity and in 1971 Mitsui & Co., Ltd. acquired S. Schonfeld and Company and later changed the name to Mitsui Foods, Inc.
In many ways, the history of Mitsui Foods is the history of the growth and evolution of the global food industry over the last fifty years. When the food import industry was in its infancy, product quality was low, prices were high and availability was unreliable. To many, these problems seemed insurmountable, but we saw incredible opportunity. We worked with local packers to improve processing and packaging standards. We developed our own system of distribution logistics to ensure reliability of the supply chain
