What Makes Us Different

Our product strength
comes from complete originality

Kobe Bussan Group operates its own food processing plants in 21 locations across Japan, enabling us to provide our customers with innovative products with high quality and low prices.
Additionally, we cooperate closely with over 350 food production plants of our overseas suppliers. With the concept of "importing authentic food products directly from around the world", we strive to import and supply locally produced products from a vast array of overseas markets.

We eliminate waste & inefficiency
through our unique
Sales System

To meet the needs of each sales channel within our brands (including Gyomu Super), we always strive to produce and procure quality products in a timely and efficient manner. Through such efforts, we eliminate as much waste and inefficiency from our supply chain as possible and maintain low-cost and highly efficient operations.
Additionally, we continue to reduce selling, general and administrative expenses through automation of back-office operations and efficient store inventory control.

Since food is a part of our daily lives,
we believe it most important to clarify
"when, who, and how our food is made".

from production and processing to sales and distribution,
so we are able to constantly provide food products
that are safe and reliable for consumers.

We source our chickens from poultry farms that are directly adjacent to poultry processing plants,
