COMPANY

We aim to be a fishery products marketing company which creates added value.
Core company leading the Marine Products Wholesaling Unit of Maruha Nichiro Group

Daito Gyorui Co., Ltd. was founded in 1947 in Tsukiji Market as a fish wholesaler serving as a base for sales of seafood procured by Taiyo Fishery Co., Ltd., Maruha Nichiro Corporation at present. Since then we have been supporting the largest market in Japan which nourishes about 33 million residents in Tokyo Metropolitan area.
However, we have witnessed significant changes in the environment surrounding the distribution of fishery products these days. On the procurement side, we face problems such as depletion of the marine natural resources, decrease in number of fishermen, decline in international competitiveness in purchase of marine products, and, on the sales side, reducing consumption of fishery food, lagging proportion of business made through the wholesale market, etc. Furthermore, we have to respond to multiple and diversifying consumer needs, while food safety is required to be perfect.
Under such circumstances, we show our commitment to be a fishery products marketing company which creates added value. We continue to grow and fulfill the function of the central wholesale market to ensure stable supply of fishery products through massive collection and smooth distribution, to meet demand of Tokyo Metropolitan area, and to develop and distribute products that satisfy the consumers’ diversified needs.
Waving the flag of our Group philosophy “Maruha Nichiro Group aims to be an essential part of society by improving everyone’s daily life with wholesome, safe and healthy food,” we shall continue our endeavor to carry out every commitment shown herein. We hope to enjoy your continued guidance and support in the future. Daito Gyorui Co., Ltd
