Del Monte Business

Del Monte

Del Monte Business aims to enrich your everyday life filled with smiles by nourishing families with earth’s goodness.
It was 1963 when Kikkoman met Del Monte. Del Monte, a global brand sold in over 80 countries worldwide, is renowned for its exceptional accomplishments in processed vegetable and fruit products. The shared commitment to quality has been a driving factor in the successful alliance between Kikkoman and Del Monte.
Currently, Kikkoman operates two sales offices in Japan and Singapore, along with two plants in Japan and two plants in Asia, making a total of four Del Monte production bases in the region. Furthermore, Del Monte also grows and sells tomatoes and vegetable seedlings in Japan.
With high-quality products made from carefully selected vegetables and fruits from around the world, Del Monte products brighten and enrich the dietary lives of people in Japan, and the Asia/Oceania region (except Philippines).

Origin and Development of Business

“Lycopene Rich Series” - High value-added products made with lots of tomatoes

After World War II, Kikkoman adopted a diversification strategy in response to the Westernization of the Japanese diet. In 1961, Kikko Foods Corporation was founded, and the production of tomato juice and ketchup started the following year.
In 1991, the company changed its name to Nippon Del Monte Corporation. From 2011 to the present, the Gunma plant has been dedicated to the production of tomato seasonings, while the Nagano plant focuses on the beverage production.
The new tomato ketchup “Lycopene Rich” was launched in August 2013, it is a product that abundantly uses ripe tomatoes and has since been developed as a series of products providing new value - tomato sauce, puree, pizza sauce, tomato beverages, and others.
As a division dedicated to the production and sales of fresh tomatoes and vegetable seedlings, Nippon Del Monte Agri Company was established in 2013. The company has increased harvest yields by incorporating advanced technology from the Netherlands and establishing the farming methods and technologies optimized for Japan.
It has been over half a century since the introduction of the Del Monte brand in Japan. The Del Monte brand will continue to enrich everyday meals and take on new challenges.

Origin and Development of Business

Del Monte product lineup in Asia and Oceania region (partial)

During the 1960s to the 1980s, Kikkoman operated the Del Monte business in Japan only. In 1990, Kikkoman gained the perpetual and exclusive trademark usage and marketing rights of Del Monte’s processed foods in Japan, as well as the Asia/Oceania region except Philippines. This milestone marks a full-scale entry into the Del Monte business abroad.
Over the past 30 years since then, Kikkoman has been delivering Del Monte products that brighten up dining tables for customers throughout the Asia and Oceania regions.
The current Del Monte business in Asia and Oceania is operated by Del Monte Asia Pte. Ltd., a company based in Singapore. This division handles the development, production, and sales of high-value-added processed vegetable, fruit, and seafood products, as well as beverages and tomato seasonings, with a primary focus on tomato ketchup, tomato juice, whole corn, and canned pineapple.
At present, two plants are located outside Japan that operate solely under the Del Monte name. The one in Thailand focuses on corn products, and the other in China mainly produces tomato ketchup.
