Mitsubishi Chemical’s subsidiaries have signed a strategic agreement with Shen Yang Qiushi Agricultural Science and Technology Development to grow fruits and vegetables indoors. With this move, the company aims at enhancing its plant factory business in China.

Japan – Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) has recently announced that two of its subsidiaries, Mitsubishi Chemical Agri Dream and Wuxi Lingyang Green Agricultural System & Technology concluded a strategic partnership on September 6 with Shen Yang Qiushi Agricultural Science and Technology Development to cooperate on their plant factory system business.

Shen Yang Qiushi, a plant nursery company with a strong network in northeast China, introduced a plant factory system provided by the two MCC subsidiaries in 2018. It produces 5 million seedlings and 60 tonnes of leafy vegetables a year. Details of the strategic partnership are as follows:

(1) The two MCC Group companies will deliver China’s first plant factory system for tomato and strawberry cultivation to Shen Yang Qiushi;

(2) After delivery, the system will serve as a tomato and strawberry demonstration farm;

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

(3) Shen Yang Qiushi will cooperate with the two MCC subsidiaries to promote sales of their plant factory system in northeast China and Mongolia.

China’s consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables has increased in recent years, and attention has shifted rapidly to ensuring a safe, secure food supply. More and more Chinese consumers are starting to adopt the habit of eating a fresh vegetable salad as a side dish, even as meat consumption increases. Consumers are also increasingly prepared to purchase premium, high-added-value vegetables. As a result, MCC regards China as an important strategic market.

MCC aims to enhance its plant factory business further in China through its strategic partnership with Shen Yang Qiushi. Through investment and partnership, the Group will continue to work proactively to develop its business by tapping growing demand in the burgeoning Asian market.
