The Indian Parliament Delegation led by the Hon'ble Speaker Mr. Somnath Chatterjee visited Satake Corporation on November 5, 2004 and had pleasant meetings with Mrs. Toshiko Satake, Chairperson. Also, the delegation members made a showroom tour and they were impressed by various state-of-the-art products.
The delegation includes H.E. Mr. & Mrs. Somnath Chatterjee, Indian Ambassador H.E. Mr. Manilal Tripathi, five parliament members of Lok Sabha and two parliament members of Rajya Sabha. They were invited by the Speakers of the Houses of Representatives and Councilors of Japan for the guests of the Diet and arrived in Japan on October 31. They visited Their Majesties The Emperor and Empress, had meetings with Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and attended the reception hosted by the Speakers of the Houses of Representatives and Councilors. After these events in Tokyo, they visited Kyoto and paid a formal visit to Satake for two hours.
India is the second-ranked rice producer in the world after China. Satake has a branch office in New Delhi and a number of Satake products are in use in India. India is a close country for Satake. When a strong earthquake shook the Western India in 2001, Satake presented the victims with our product Magic Rice that can be cooked by just adding hot water or city water. The visit of the Indian Parliament Delegation this time will promote the friendship between India and Japan and we are pleased with the further development of our close relationship.
Satake as a global company has been contributing the world industries through mankind's three main staple foods, i.e., rice, wheat and corn. Our company has established eight subsidiaries overseas and exports products to 140 countries worldwide. We respond to the requests of our customers from large to small countries and do our best to assist our customers in realizing their dream.
