An era filled with passion is
and our pride.
Ever since the business was founded in 1938, the path that the Ogawa Group took was a history of nothing but pursuing the quality of meat for consumption. From a time when eating beef was not very common, we dedicated ourselves to popularizing meat for consumption. We are proud of having played a part in developing dietary culture amidst reconstruction and rapid growth of society after the war.
Under our motto of "pursuing truly rich products," our hopes of "wanting to deliver delicious and healthy items to the table no matter how hard the times may be" has brought us to where we are today. By making use of our irreplaceable and precious experiences and achievements from the path we have taken so far, and the rich know-how obtained along the way, we will continue to further excel in the future.
