As a specialty trading company with rich product knowledge, Summit Agro International undertakes the entire business process of development, registration and sales for our business lines by making full use of the network of the Sumitomo Corporation Group. This integrated business approach enables us to provide reliable high-quality products throughout Japan as well as around the world.
We provide a wide range of products to protect crops from pests and diseases and produce good harvests. We also focus on developing earth-friendly plant protection methods such as those using pheromones.
Promoting Stable Food Supply and
The world population, which is currently about 7 billion, is expected to continue to increase, particularly in developing countries, and to exceed 9 billion by 2050. On the other hand, the world’s cultivated acreage has remained approximately the same, and is unlikely to increase dramatically in the future. The global balance of the supply and demand for food is thus likely to become increasingly tighter in the mid- to long-term.
Under these circumstances, as a trading company specialized in agricultural production materials, we are working hard to help increase food production by providing various services on a global scale, based on our wealth of knowledge mainly on crop protection products. We collect data and search for products through our own network and that of the Sumitomo Corporation Group; develop and register products in each country; offer technological diffusion and support services for safe and appropriate use of products; and perform many other activities to assist customers in every aspect of agricultural production.

Creating a "better future for humans and animals"
In the veterinary drug business, we utilize the global network we have built over many years in the fields of pharmaceuticals and pesticides to procure raw materials and APIs(such as antibiotics and hormones), and to export excellent Japanese vet-drug products overseas. The role of vet-drug is to improve the breeding environment and efficiency of meat production by preventing and treating the plague of livestock.
We support people's richer and healthier diet through these work.
