Kanagawa Meat Trading Center Co., Ltd., an ISO 22000 certified company, has started its business on April of 2002, as a meat distribution center with the highest hygiene level in Japan introducing the latest equipment. To ensure the hygiene in slaughtering, cutting and storing, clean zone and dirty zone are divided by floor. The work clothes are color-coded to avoid crossing of people from different sections at the work site. In addition to these arrangements for hygienic management, strict temperature control is also carried out.

It is the only department to manage all the processes from slaughtering, cutting, processing to transporting with the perception of hygienic quality control, playing a role in improving and leading all of what are concerned with hygiene and quality control at all sites.
