The Denis Group was founded in 1862 in Vietnam by the Denis family, who hailed from Bordeaux, France. It is now proud to be known as one of the largest trading and business groups in Southeast Asia. Today, 150 years after its foundation, the Denis Group is even more prosperous, having expanded its three major business onto five continents.
The history of the Denis Group in Japan goes back to the establishment of a trading company in 1947. Handling a wide variety of products and services, the Denis Group established Nichifutsu Boeki K.K. (which means “Japan-France Trading Company”) in 1954. For more than 60 years, it has served as a bridge between French companies and the Japanese market. Along with importing consumer products such as skis, furniture, jewelry, and wine, Nichifutsu Boeki K.K. has established and expanded its business operations in key sectors such as the automobile (Citroën), insurance (AGF, now Allianz), and textile industries. From the early 1990’s, Nichifutsu Boeki K.K. began specializing in the import and sale of high-quality, innovative food & beverage brands, attaining its current position by developing the Japanese market.
Denis Japan works to provide its foreign partners with an entry point into the Japanese market, and to provide Japanese consumers with foreign products. It utilizes over 60 years of experience in Japan to the fullest in order to develop innovative technologies and products. It will continue to introduce these products and services to the people of Japan, preserving the pioneer spirit of the Denis Group.
