Masahiko Honma President

Majirushi Suisan was founded in 1974 as a wholesale distributor specializing in tuna. Since then, we have expanded our business by adding fish eggs, salmon, trout, crabs, shrimps, frozen foods, dried-salted fish and other seafood to our product line in response to requests from our customers.

Our subsidiary Marutoku Suisan Ltd. was established in 1986 within the Hakodate Municipal Wholesale Fish Market and has since been filling its role as an intermediary wholesaler.

In 1994, to offer top-quality products to our customers, we installed an ultracold freezing chamber for the storage of tuna to preserve its high quality. Then in 1996, we opened our new office in Sapporo mainly for tuna trading. Our careful services there are well received by our customers.

Our Bluefin tuna caught in Toi in Hakodate is immediately treated on shipboard with particular care to retain the highest quality and freshness of the fish. We are now endeavoring to increase our sales so that our reputed tuna will be enjoyed by more and more people. We look forward to giving you the utmost satisfaction with our proud products.

It is expected that our customer’s needs for seafood will further diversify at a rapid pace. We are determined to continue our effort to accumulate expertise in various business fields so that each of our staff can adequately respond to your requests based on comprehensive knowledge.

Thank you for your patronage. We are looking forward to serving you again.
