Ohguchi Suisan has developed various off-market distribution routes in addition to the traditional market distribution only at the Kanazawa Central Wholesale Market, and procures a wider variety of marine products.
Products purchased through auction and relative trade are consolidated at the Sainen Office adjacent to the central wholesale market, and after being divided into smaller portions and processed according to needs, they are shipped to mass merchandisers and restaurants nationwide.
Using digital tools based on analog relationships of trust between people, the company moves goods and information by connecting with production areas and sales outlets, as well as among middle wholesalers in each region.
Ohguchi Suisan practices such marine product distribution.
Kanazawa Central Wholesale Market handles such a wide variety of marine products that it is said, "There is no fish you won't find here.
At the Kanazawa Central Wholesale Market, the "Ichiban-Seri" (first auction) starts at 3:30 a.m., and the "Asa-Seri" (morning auction), which specializes in fresh local fish, starts at 8:30 a.m.
The auction drop business number "500" is the pride of Ohguchi Suisan and a sign of trust.
With fluctuating fish species, landings, and quality, it takes a skilled connoisseur to instantly identify and sell the best fish.
We have appointed a person in charge of each type and category of fish, including fresh, salted and dried, frozen, specialty, and fat fish, to procure products based on his or her discernment cultivated in the retail business.
Based on new market needs, we also make proposals to processors.

We live in an age where information can be exchanged in real time with a smartphone.

The key to distribution in the future is not to wait for things to come in, but to quickly grasp and utilize the information.
The trust and sales power of Ohguchi Suisan, which has been in business for 80 years, are its great strengths.
