Rigorous food safety

When selecting suppliers, we look at areas such as product quality, technology, product development and the company’s ability to adapt to customer needs. Our suppliers must also have adequate food safety management systems in place at all stages of the production process. We visit supplier facilities to check standards are being met in production processes. We also carry out microbiological tests on food in distribution channels as part of thorough quality control.

Comprehensive support – a key trait of specialist trading companies

Lacto Japan has remained competitive in the dairy food sector for many years by gathering the latest information from its procurement and sales network and overseas subsidiaries and offices.  

We have gained experience in the industry through the reliable delivery of food ingredients to user production facilities and built up our expertise as a specialist food trading company. Using this know-how, we provide backup to our customers through technical support for new product development and through the timely analysis and provision of financial data such as foreign exchange and interest rates, which can change dramatically on a daily basis.
