Uoriki Fresh, Inc. is the U.S. subsidiary of Japan’s Top Fishmonger, Uoriki Co., Ltd., a public company headquartered in Tokyo, Japan with an 80-year history and over $300m in annual sales. Uoriki Co., Ltd. operates 60 seafood markets, 6 restaurants, and is the largest single buyer at the world famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo.
Uoriki Fresh Inc. is an American seafood company with deep affiliations around the world. In 2005, this company began to distribute SuperFrozen tuna to the Japanese restaurant market and also introduced it to the US chefs. At the same time the fresh tuna market was becoming more challenging with supply diminishing and prices rising. As SuperFrozen tuna is the alternative product for fresh tuna, the timing was perfect.
In 2006, we built, in Secaucus NJ, the most technically advanced SuperFrozen facility in North America. We invested in training staff, create shipping partnerships, built special ULT freezers, put distributors in place, all in preparation to serve you. Uoriki Fresh has the largest worldwide supply chain network of SuperFrozen tuna.
