Message from the president
Tetsuro Nakamura, President

Since our founding in November 1962, we have produced and distributed pre-cooked dishes and fish-paste products. In January 1983, however, we decided to change our business and started the manufacture and distribution of seafood extracts such as oyster extracts, soups, sauces and dipping sauces. Now some 28 years later, we have developed into a company that has a strong presence in the industry of seafood extracts and liquid seasoning. Our products are distributed mainly for business use and food-processing use, and we are most delighted when our customers find pleasure and value in using our products.

We will continue to make efforts and improvements to enhance the quality of our products in our daily operations, while holding onto our basic principle as a food manufacturing company. We will continuously produce valuable products for our customers.

Tetsuro Nakamura, President
