■ Crab stick lines(Domestic share: 80%, Global share: 70%)

Crab sticks were first produced in Japan in 1972, and the first crab stick line was developed by our company in 1979. Crab sticks also became a big hit overseas, leading to the start of overseas production. We started exporting production equipment in 1982. Currently, we have top global market share in the industry, with our crab stick lines operating in 21 of the 24 countries where crab sticks are produced. Most of the crab stick products that peple eat on a daily basis are manufactured on our crab stick lines.
