SOFCO Seafoods Inc. Resumes Operation in Kamaishi City
The processing plant of SOFCO Seafoods Inc., which was located in the town of Otsuchi, Iwate Prefecture at the time of the earthquake, incurred extensive damage from the disaster and was forced to suspend operations. The plant was later rebuilt in the city of Kamaishi in cooperation with the parties concerned, and resumed operations in March 2012. The rebuilding of this plant is contributing to the recovery of the core fishing industry of the coastal region, and is helping to create jobs, thus revitalizing the local community. SOFCO Seafoods is currently working to restore its earnings with a focus on flaked salmon, one of its main products.
