Global strategies make progress in Europe
Entering a new phase as a European sales company becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary


The Nissui Group's efforts in Europe to date

In August 2010, Nippon Suisan Kaisha, Ltd. (Nissui) made Nordic Seafood A/S ("Nordic"), which has been engaged in the sales of processed seafood including frozen seafood, surimi, and breaded-seafood for commercial-, household- and industrial use throughout Europe, its wholly-owned subsidiary. As a result, the Nissui Group's Global Links and Local Links are set to make even further progress on the European market.
