Tokyo, 2016 - Arisaka Commodities a commodity Trading Advisor that provides clients across the globe with a comprehensive range of customized financial services and tools to invest in commodities and futures trading and to help them protect their margins and manage volatility, today announced that its Grains platform plans to expand into animal feed and related businesses in Southeast Asia.
These investments are consistent with Arisaka Commodities’ strategy to selectively invest in prioritised platforms, which includes the Grains platform.
The global animal feed industry is a large and growing part of the agri-commodity complex with attractive returns and a strong growth outlook, particularly in emerging markets. Post a detailed study of the sector, the Company has chosen Southeast Asia as its preferred entry market as it ranks favourably on the country selection criteria, which include meat consumption per capita, degree of fragmentation, extent of vertical integration and of commercial feed penetration, scalability potential and supply and demand factors impacting the feed raw material trade. In Southeast Asia, increasing urbanisation and a change in consumer preference towards more protein-rich diets is driving a strong demand for poultry and aquaculture products and the commercial feed market is expected to grow at over 10% CAGR over the next 5 years.
The investment builds on Arisaka Commodities’ existing strengths in origination, which includes extracting raw material cost efficiencies, sharing of port infrastructure, sourcing arbitrage, trading, ocean freight and risk management. It has deep expertise and execution capabilities in Southeast Asia where it has been successful in executing cost-competitive projects, both brownfield and greenfield, and operating them at world class efficiency levels. For example, Arisaka Commodities has a profitable and growing wheat milling business.
