Press release: May 30, 2024
“Ishikawa Prefecture Recovery Support Fair” will be held at the staff cafeterias of six government ministries!
*Our cafeterias contracted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, such as “Afu Shokudo”, will provide agricultural and fishery products from Ishikawa Prefecture, which was severely damaged by the 2020 Noto Peninsula Earthquake, as an event to support Ishikawa Prefecture. Send encouragement for recovery to Ishikawa Prefecture by eating ingredients produced in Ishikawa Prefecture*
* “Take, make, make everything, SANKO” *
SANKO MARKETING Co., Ltd., which has both food and seafood businesses FOODS (Head Office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Shigehiro Nagasawa, Stock Code: 2762, hereinafter referred to as the “Company”) operates cafeterias operated by the Company, including the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries employee cafeteria “Afu Shokudo”. We will continue to work together with producers to propose a “food culture with value” that will revitalize production areas in order to protect Japan’s food culture.
* A support fair using ingredients produced in Ishikawa Prefecture will be held to support earthquake recovery! *
We would like to express our heartfelt sympathies to everyone affected by the 2020 Noto Peninsula Earthquake, and pray for the earliest possible recovery.
Ishikawa Prefecture is located in the center of Honshu, on the Sea of ​​Japan coast, with an elongated topography stretching from north to south, and is a cultural prefecture where the Kaga Hyakumangoku culture, which flourished in ancient times, is still alive and well. It is a region blessed with one of the richest natural environments in Japan, as represented by numerous national parks, and has magnificent natural scenery that changes throughout the seasons, including mountains with a variety of vegetation, and coastlines and rivers with a richly changing expression. You can enjoy it.
However, the earthquake that occurred on January 1, 2020 caused severe damage to Ishikawa Prefecture, which is rich in nature. The fisheries industry was particularly affected, with a large-scale fire breaking out on Asaichi Street in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture. There has been significant damage to the ports where fish are unloaded, as well as the quays and breakwaters of the ports, and some ports have become unusable due to ground upheavals and large cracks in the ground. It seems that there are many people involved in the fishing industry who are concerned about the continuation of fishing operations due to the extensive damage. In some areas, lifelines are still struggling to be restored. Even under these difficult circumstances, we are moving step by step toward recovery by transporting fish to ports where they can be landed.
As for what we can do now, our contracted cafeteria has been implementing projects to support local fishermen in Ishikawa Prefecture and selling menus using ingredients from Ishikawa Prefecture. The “Ishikawa Revitalization Support Fair” will be held at 10 stores in 6 ministries and agencies to send cheers to Ishikawa Prefecture. The purpose of the event is to disseminate information about Ishikawa Prefecture ingredients from each cafeteria, and to also play a public relations role to spread the word among users, and to deliver the resulting voices of support from users to the producers. That’s what happens.

We mainly sell fish caught in various parts of the prefecture, including Noto, and auctioned at Kanazawa Port, as well as processed seafood products from Ishikawa Prefecture, and menus using Kaga vegetables and fresh vegetables grown by local farmers. In addition, we hope to spread the word about ama fishing by offering menus using ingredients such as turban shells and wakame seaweed caught last year by Wajima’s ama divers, who are working to restart fishing operations that were temporarily suspended due to the uplift of the coastline.

We sincerely hope that these efforts will lead to support for those involved in the fishing industry and seafood processing businesses, and that by eating and consuming the products we provide, we will be able to help the people of Ishikawa Prefecture, who are working hard to restart their operations. I hope so.
* Fish Day x “Afu Shokudo” Supporting the sustainable fishing industry of Ishikawa Prefecture! *
Additionally, the Fisheries Agency has designated the 3rd to 7th of each month as “Fish Day.” Since marine resources are inherently sustainable resources, we are working to increase the consumption of marine products based on the idea that “selecting and eating fish” is a consumption behavior aimed at achieving the SDGs. “Fish Day” was established in October 2022 with the concept of “Fish x Sustainer” to be promoted by the Fisheries Agency through public-private
collaboration. In Japan, which has a blessed marine environment, a wide variety of fish are caught and a fish-eating culture has taken root in each region, but the amount consumed continues to decline. By eating fish on this “Fish Day,” we are thinking about passing on delicious fish to the future. Our contracted cafeterias, including the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’ “Afu Shokudo”, have a different theme from the 3rd to the 7th of every month, and serve fish menus based on “Fish Day.”

And this Fish Day, Ishikawa Prefecture’s fishing industry continues to be in a difficult situation due to the effects of the earthquake, so in light of this predicament, we will be introducing a fish menu using Ishikawa Prefecture’s marine products in June. It will be sold on “Fish Day”.

We have a strong sense of crisis that Ishikawa Prefecture’s fishing industry may decline due to the effects of this earthquake. Our company is a fisherman, and our group company also operates a large wholesale business in Toyosu. We also have deep relationships with fishermen and seafood businesses in the production areas. At this event, we will do what only our company can do, widely disseminate the positive efforts of Ishikawa Prefecture’s production areas and marine products business in the face of difficult circumstances, and carry out educational activities to increase the consumption of marine products. We thought that this was not the case, and decided to hold this event.
*Information on the Ishikawa reconstruction support fair organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’ “Afu Shokudo”* During the period from June 3rd to June 14th, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’ “Afu Shokudo” will offer dishes using seafood, agricultural products, and processed ingredients from local businesses from Ishikawa Prefecture at the “Ishikawa
Revitalization Support Fair.” I will.

We have been having repeated meetings with the Ishikawa Prefecture Fisheries Cooperative Association since February, and are preparing menus prepared with dishes such as flathead flounder, which is popular in Ishikawa Prefecture, as well as horse mackerel and mackerel shipped directly from Ishikawa Prefecture. We also purchase “Kaga Yasai”, a brand of agricultural products from Kanazawa City, Ishikawa
Prefecture, and Kanazawa vegetables grown by local farmers from spring to early summer.

We hope that you will enjoy our menu that uses ingredients from Ishikawa Prefecture, support the producers of Ishikawa Prefecture, and express our gratitude to the producers from our cafeteria.

(Menu introduction)
●Boiled “flathead flounder”
In Ishikawa Prefecture, where a wide variety of flounder are landed, flathead flounder is the most commonly landed flounder and is also registered as a national pride fish. It is caught using a fishing method that is protected by the cooperation of fishermen in Ishikawa Prefecture, and is the prefecture’s representative fish. We are proud of the high freshness that can only be achieved because we are close to fishing grounds. It has a light taste and is low in fat and high in protein. It is served simmered, which is a standard way to eat it in Ishikawa.
●“Ishikawa Prefecture horse mackerel” fried curry
Horse mackerel is widely caught in Ishikawa Prefecture from May to August using set nets and purse seines, and the catch is among the highest in the country. The thick, freshly caught horse mackerel is sent directly after being processed, and the fried horse mackerel is carefully breaded one by one at each store and paired with black curry, a local gourmet dish from Ishikawa Prefecture.
●“Kagamarumo” grated tuna yamakake bowl
“Kagamaru-mo” is a specialty brand yam grown in Nomi City and Komatsu City, Ishikawa Prefecture. It has a chewy, strong stickiness, unique texture, and rich flavor, and is highly nutritious. It can be expected to have a variety of effects, including enhancing liver and kidney function and preventing aging. In September 2016, it became the first in Ishikawa Prefecture and the 17th in the country to be registered under the Japan Geographical Indications (GI) Protection System.
