Delivering products manufactured at our factories to customers

Under the motto of “From the World’s Oceans to Your Table”, we have made efforts to manufacture products in line with the viewpoints of customers through the processes of fishing and development/manufacturing/sale of products.

For sustainable fishery, we acquired MSC certification which is a marine ecolabel.

The MSC label is given to marine products that have been caught while protecting the aquatic resources and the marine environment. When customers select marine products with this label on them, it will support the fishermen and producers who have made strict efforts to prevent overfishing.
