A network of seven flour mills including large-scale coastal mills located in major cities throughout Japan.
NIPPN has seven flour mills throughout Japan, with one in each of Yokohama, Chiba, Nagoya, Kobe-Konan, Osaka, Fukuoka and Otaru.
Our large-scale coastal mills currently account for 80% of our production capacity. Using these facilities, we are stably supplying high-quality products every day, taking food safety and reliability into consideration.
We are also establishing our own wheat silos. We are working to stabilize our product supply and enhance our cost competitiveness.
Establishing self-operated wheat silos with a view to leading the flour milling industry in terms of storage capacity after the completion of the work.
Here at NIPPN, we are boosting the storage capacity of our wheat silos in an effort to make our flour milling operations more cost competitive. We are starting this construction work in Chiba, Kobe-Konan, Fukuoka and Chita.
Our storage capacity will increase to 300,000 tons after the completion of the work, the largest volume in the flour milling industry.
The storage capacity expansion is aimed at increasing our capability to supply flour and at making our supply system rock solid. The capacity buildup will further stabilize our flour supply.
