Subject: European Union - Offer - Frozen - Kurose Yellowtail - The best yellowtail product in the market - Take a look to find why
"Kurose Yellowtail," a brand of farmed Yellowtail, has met with favorable reception since its launch, due to its adequate amount of fat and the pleasant color of its chiai (deep red flesh near the spine).
Kurose Yellowtail is the product of maximum utilization of the Nissui Group network, which covers every process from the research and development of aquaculture technology and the development and production of feed to maintaining the freshness of fish and hygienic processing.
At the core of the Nissui Group's Yellowtail aquaculture business is Kurose Suisan Co., Ltd. (Kushima City, Miyazaki Prefecture), a 100%-owned subsidiary of Nissui established in January 2004. As of April 1, 2012, Kurose Suisan has 160 employees and over 400 sink-and-float-type fish cages. Kurose Suisan ships 1.2 million Yellowtails per year, and assuming an average weight of 5 kg per fish, it is one of the nation's largest Yellowtail farming companies, responsible for approximately for 5% of all Yellowtail production in Japan.
The Yellowtail, after being bled and cooled, is then immediately transported from the ship to Kurose Suisan's processing plant. The plant was awarded EU Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (EU-HACCP) certification, which is the strictest criteria for processing plants in the world, from Miyazaki Prefecture in 2007 after undergoing renovations and giving its employees the required training.
Currently, Kurose Yellowtail is sold in countries throughout Europe through Nissui Group distributors. In March 2011, Kurose Suisan acquired ISO22000:2005 (Food Safety Management System) certification, and together with the EU-HACCP, has been striving to improve its level of food management.
