2.Synergy effect

 The Netherlands is known as a major hub for seafood product processing and exports in Europe due to its flourishing fisheries industry and large number of processing companies. Since its founding in 1982, NS Holland has been engaged in the purchasing, processing, and sales of white fish and other seafood products that are harvested near the Netherlands. Frozen foods, including processed fishery products and fried foods produced at the company's plant in Urk, are sold not only in the Netherlands but also other locations throughout Europe and have a extensive of sales channels.

 Through this consolidation, Kyokuyo will expand its European food production bases and pursue economies of scale by expanding the handling of marine raw materials by processing the raw materials we procure from around the world at NS Holland. In addition, synergies in sales capabilities are expected from the reciprocal use of the sales networks of the Company and KOCAMAN in Turkey. In order to maximize these synergies and optimize the European business as a whole, Kyokuyo has decided to re-organize KKE as a holding company and establish NSH Co., Ltd., KOCAMAN Co., Ltd. and Kyokuyo Europe Trading B.V.(KET Co., Ltd., which spun off the former frozen food purchasing and sales functions of KKE Co., Ltd.) under the umbrella.
