Zen-Noh Group

GrainCorp has formed a strategic joint venture with major Japanese agricultural cooperative, Zen-Noh Grain Corporation, to create GrainsConnect Canada – a highly-efficient supply chain that will connect your grain to the world.

Zen-Noh Group is a federation of agricultural cooperatives in Japan. Since its establishment in 1972 it has grown into one of the largest cooperatives in the world, valued at over 115 billion yen and supplying products and services to its 1,032-member cooperative unions in Japan and internationally.

The Zen-Noh Group is responsible for supplying food products to consumers across Japan, Asia and other regions. The Group accounts for a major share of food production and supply in Japan. Its operations also include fertilizer, agrichemicals, energy, and a wide variety of other products and services.

Zen-Noh’s goal is for all member cooperative unions to work together to increase their production efficiency and approve their economic position.
