Kyokuyo America corp.

Kyokuyo was founded in 1937 as a fishing company and has evolved into one of the world’s leading food processing companies with an emphasis on seafood. Kyokuyo established two food processing plants in Japan in 1960 and in the early 70’s established a cold storage facility and began Tuna operations on a fleet of frozen-at-sea purse seine vessels.

Kyokuyo America was established an office in Seattle, Washington. In 1973.

In the early 80’s, several more value-added plants were established primarily for breading and producing sauces for ready to eat items. We set up operations in Qingdao, China and Saigon, Vietnam for reprocessing. In 2005, a joint venture with K&U Enterprises was created to concentrate on frozen sushi and sushi toppings. The most recent addition for Kyokuyo was to set up Kyokuyo Global Seafood in Thailand in 2020.

Kyokuyo’s mission is to continue to strive to maintain your trust by supplying safe, high quality seafood products to our customers.

Kyokuyo has a well-established reputation for high-quality products due to our procurement capabilities and processing technologies accumulated over many years as a seafood professional.
