To supply stable quantity under quality control system
TOKYO MEAT MARKET CO., Ltd. was licensed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries as a wholesaler of the Meat Market of the Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market and founded in September 1966. Since its founding, our company has taken on the mission of ensuring a steady meat supply to the people of Tokyo, a giant consumption area. To fulfil the mission, we have strived to help stabilize a supply amount of high-quality meat for consumers as well as to develop a fair price setting mechanism through auctions in the market. Our auctioning price is used as an important indicator to set the price of meat sold in stores, supermarkets, and the like across Japan.
We assume a key role in suppling to consumers the safe meat, which has passed strict hygienic inspections conducted by the Shibaura Meat Sanitary Inspection Station, Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
