TOKYO -- As Indonesians grow hungrier for dairy products, more businesses are entering the market to satisfy demand. One, Japanese trading house Mitsui & Co, hopes to begin selling premium quality milk in Indonesia in September through an Indonesian subsidiary.

The company plans to breed nearly 400 dairy cows from Australia and produce milk on a farm it has operated in West Java Province since 2017. The milk will be processed using an extended shelf-life method that delays spoilage. Mitsui wants to start supplying milk to local high-end supermarkets in September.
