Andes Kogen-buta is a Chilean pork brand created through a partnership between the Nippon Ham Group and Agrosuper S.A., Chile's largest hog farming business. Chile is a natural fortress, bounded by the ocean, mountains, deserts, and the continent of Antarctica. The local environment maximizes safety by impeding the propagation of germs and viruses, making Chile ideal for raising healthy hogs.
▲An integrated production system rigorously controls everything, from raising healthy hogs through to processing and packing in the pursuit of safety.
▲Inspectors from Nippon Meat Packers (Chile) visit packing and processing plants every day to swiftly accommodate customer requests.
▲In keeping with its commitment to safety and hygiene management, the plant has secured certifications under the international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, and the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point system.
▲Japan's pork imports are mainly for producing processed foods and delicatessen products.
Marine Products Business
Chile stretches 4,329 kilometers from north to south and faces the Pacific Ocean, which abounds in marine resources. Since absorbing Andemar in 1999, Nippon Meat Packers (Chile) has produced and processed marine products, especially sea urchins, for export to Japan.
▲As soon as they arrive in port after divers harvest them, sea urchins are transported immediately, while fresh, to our own local plants in Puerto Montt and Punta Arenas. The plants process each sea urchin by hand. Strict quality management encompasses checking for taste, color, smell, and other attributes.
▲In outlying fishing areas around Chile, we also produce and process commercial seaweeds, as well as squid, crab, octopus, shellfish, and other marine products.
