Greeting

We commemorate 70th anniversary at Tsukiji market and will drag the future of Toyosu market from 71st year.

For Japan, an island country surrounded by ocean, seafood has been an important part of daily life since ancient times. The Tokyo Central Wholesale Market at Tsukiji played an integral role in providing fresh and frozen seafood in Tokyo. It has been long regarded and globally recognized as the premier source for the highest quality seafood.

Since Chuo Gyorui Co., Ltd. was founded in July 1947, we have established ourselves as one of the major wholesalers at the market, supplying the best seafood products in the Tokyo metropolitan area and throughout Japan. We strive to provide our customers with the freshest seafood at a fair price as quickly as possible. Customer satisfaction is our top priority. On October 11, 2018, The Tokyo Central Wholesale Market moved to Toyosu in Koto-ku, Tokyo, about two kilometers south of Tsukiji. This new market, just as the one at Tsukiji was, will be world renowned for its seafood excellence.

Chuo Gyorui Co., Ltd. will move forward making every possible efforts to promote the seafood industry from a global point of view even more than ever. We sincerely request that all of you, our esteemed business partners and customers, will continue to extend your patronage and support to our company.
