Promoting Japanese Cuisine to the World through Deliciously Fun Experiences

Starting in 1975 with the wholesale of seafood, Daiki Suisan opened supply routes throughout Japan and overseas and expanded its business by developing an original distribution system that delivers products to the consumer at producer level prices. The operation of our directly-managed Machi-no-Minato (fresh fish markets) and expansion of our chain of kaiten (conveyor belt) sushi restaurants are supported by this in-house system.
With “Freshness First” - the basis of all cuisine - as our corporate philosophy, we continue to pursue new business visions from Osaka, which has long served as “Tenka-no-Daidokoro” (the nation’s kitchen). This is done by providing people around the world with seafood shipped directly from Japan’s renowned fisheries as well as the freshest delicacies from the world’s ocean’s and delicious Japanese sake to match.

Daiki Suisan Group Chairman Yasunobu Saeki


Corporate Philosophy

Based on the theme of “Freshness First,” the Daiki Suisan Group is grateful for all of nature’s gifts and pursues the true value of food in order to help achieve a richer society.
