Supplying grain from huge silos to our plants and to manufacturers
Showa Sangyo's huge silos at Kashima, Kobe, and Funabashi have a combined holding capacity of 365,000 tons of grain. The plants at Kashima and Kobe also have piers that enable large Panamax-grade grain ships to dock alongside the facilities.
Owing to their excellent locations, both plants efficiently store and handle imported grain.
Grain is unloaded from the ship to the silos using suction. Storage conditions ensure optimal quality control of the grain, which is supplied either to Showa Sangyo's plants or to other manufacturers that process grains.
