“Hyogo area” was founded as a starting place of international city of Kobe and has been developed as an global trading port for more than 1,300 years thanks to its geographical supremacy. Going back to Heian and Kamakura period, Kobe port performed actively as a main spot for the trading business by TAIRA no Kiyomori between Japan and Sung Dynasty in China.

Also the main character in Ryotaro Shiba’s “Nanohana no Oki”, Kahee Takadaya from Awaji Island who succeeded with the Kitamae-bune, started his business in this area in the latter half of the Edo period.

SHINKO GYORUI LIMITED was built in 1948 in this historic region dealing in Fishery Products. Now our company consists of the headquarter in Kobe Central Wholesale Market, Kobe Eastern Branch and Akashi Branch. All of our sections purchase the marine products not only inside Japan but all over the world and deliver them to the consumers.

We are a member of Maruha-Nichiro Corporation Group and always keep our mind to hold our customers in high regards under our vision “to dedicate the development of regional society by providing the safe and stable food service”. We believe this policy consequently leads our company to the next stage. This is based on Maruha-Nichiro Corporation’s 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.”

The suffering COVID-19 has now become under control but Russian military invasion into Ukraine causing world economic deterioration. Therefore foreseeing the future on fisheries industry and worldwide economy is still unpredictable.

However, here in Kobe, we have abundant resources surrounded by rich ocean.
To make most of the excellences, we keep on bringing the best out of this international and historic area as a “KOBE VALUE” and supplying fine, various and super tasty fish products to the world markets.

We are looking forward to seeing your big smile with our delicious foods.

Thank you very much.
