Expanding multifaceted, organized seafood business.
Seafood is essential for the food culture of Japan. In executing our full-line strategy designed to cover all areas of food, we are proactively engaged in the seafood business. In addition to handling the seafood products nationwide, we formed a business alliance with Daito Gyorui, the largest wholesaler of marine products in the industry, to develop a more strategic, specialized business. We have appointed persons in charge of seafood merchandising within the company and established a seafood division at Senmi, a group company based in metropolitan Tokyo. We intend to develop products jointly with local operators, implement multifaceted, organized initiatives, and meet needs on a timely and suitable basis.
