The Food & Consumer Services Division is engaged in a diverse range of businesses in six business fields, contributing to the healthy and prosperous lifestyles of people through global markets. The division is also actively working to realize a sustainable society.
In the grain business, the division's strengths are its many years of experience and expertise in the grain silo business in Japan. Globally, it is primarily enhancing initiatives for the stable supply of environmentally friendly Brazilian grain and will continue to link its knowledge with its assets, functions, and global network to further expand its businesses.
In the food business, the division is committed to safety management unique to Toyota Tsusho at manufacturing and processing centers and food service companies in Japan and overseas to supply high-quality products. The division also responds flexibly to increasingly diverse customer needs while working to reduce food loss by optimizing the value chain, starting with the consumer.
In the insurance business, the division’s strengths are class-leading sales agencies in Japan and its insurance brokerage business overseas. While also increasing support for the renewable energy business, which is of high interest for carbon neutrality initiatives, the division is providing end-to-end services, ranging from risk analysis to insurance arrangement.
In the textile business, the division is using its strength as a comprehensive supplier that handles everything from materials development to production and sales to actively reduce apparel loss and environmental impacts, which includes ensuring traceability, recycling clothing and industrial materials, and developing materials and products made from recycled resources.
In the living environment business, the division is making effective use of hotel residences to support companies that are expanding operations overseas as well as company-owned real estate and is implementing renovation rental projects. The division is also providing infrastructure with an emphasis on differentiated products and services to support the lives of consumers and the activities of businesses in Japan and overseas while developing communities where people can lead secure, comfortable, and healthy life styles.

Fiscal year ended March 31, 2022
For the purpose of building a system through which the necessary medical and pharmaceutical products can be delivered to hospitals and pharmacies in a timely fashion, in March 2021 we invested in the Indian pharmaceutical distributor Skites Pharma Private Limited. In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022, we not only made progress on streamlining the purchasing of pharmaceuticals at Sakra World Hospital, an medical institution we operate in India, but we leveraged our know-how in gauging the needs of hospitals to start supplying the Indian market with Japanese drugs and supplements via Skites Pharma Private Limited.
