About Nishimoto Wismettac  
Nishimoto Wismettac Group, previously known as Nishimoto Trading Co., Ltd., was founded in 1912 in Kobe as a food importer and exporter. Today, the Group is based in Tokyo but our head office is still registered in Kobe. 
In the 105 years since the Company was founded, we have remained committed to our founding principle of supplying Japanese food to the world and bringing the world’s food to Japan.
In the part of our business that sources the world’s food for Japanese consumers, we started out as Japan’s first importer of US oranges and lemons. Today, as the exclusive import agent for Sunkist Growers Inc. in the US, we have become one of the largest importers of fruit and vegetables in Japan, while also expanding the range of products we import and sell to include seafood and a wide choice of delicatessen items. Importing fruit, vegetables and other produce is now one of the Group’s core businesses.

Our in-house brand Shirakiku is now a well-known Japanese food brand with many devoted customers worldwide.

Acquire Full Ownership of Ban Choon
NTC Wismettac Singapore Pte. Ltd. successfully acquired full ownership of Ban Choon Marketing Pte. Ltd in Jan 2022, and thereby elevating it to the status of a wholly owned subsidiary. This strategic move reflects a significant development in the corporate structure and synergy between the two entities.

This milestone marks the evolvement of Ban Choon Marketing into one of the foremost importers of Japanese fruits and vegetables. The synergies of the two entities have helped scale up and broaden the range of our imported products.

This solidifies our stronghold as the exclusive import agent for fruits, vegetables, and other agricultural products in
