2015.9.29Acquisition of land for construction of a food product plant in Malaysia

The Fuji Oil Group has acquired rights to use of land in the state of Johor, Malaysia, for the purpose of serving as new site of production in Southeast Asia.

1. Reason for acquisition of the site

Fuji Oil Co., Ltd. began developing business in Southeast Asia in 1981, when it established Fuji Oil (Singapore) Pte. Ltd., a plant for manufacture of oils and fats in the Republic of Singapore. It subsequently established additional plants for cream and margarine while broadening the scope of its business.
In recent years, the dietary lives of consumers in Singapore and other Southeast Asian markets have become increasingly westernized. This is reflected in expanding consumption of bread and other Western-style bakery items, which is translating into a growing demand for cream, margarine, and other such ingredients used in these items.
Fuji Oil saw a need for enlargement and reinforcement of its production capacity in response to this higher demand for processed oil and fat products, and consequently launched a search for a suitable site for construction of a new plant in the region.
As a result, it decided to acquire a site in Iskandar Malaysia, which is located in the Malaysian state of Johor, on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. This site was chosen in the belief that it was adapted to future development of business owing to the convenience of networking with current production locations in Southeast Asia in aspects such as raw material procurement and distribution.
Fuji Oil has positioned it as the site for construction of a major plant for the buildup of its business in Southeast Asia. As this indicates, it is committed to continuing with its active efforts to further develop its business in the region.

2. Outline of the acquired land

1) Site: within Senai Airport City in Johor, Malaysia
2) Area: 100,159 m2
3) Investment:  about JPY 1.8 billion (MYR 53,906,000)
4) Acquired from:  Senai Airport City Sdn Bhd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MMC Corporation Bhd. (listed on Bursa Malaysia, the Malaysian stock exchange)
