目利きの技

天保三年(1832年)の創業より今日まで、186年の間
ぜにやは『鰹節』を始めとして『海苔』『椎茸』『昆布』など
日本の伝統的な食材を品質第一、安心安全に徹底しながら提供することを心がけて参りました。

今、どこでもよく耳にする”厳選の○○”という言葉。しかし、その基準はあいまいで様々です。
味・香り・食感・色艶・産地・添加物・作り手の想い
これらの要素、全てにこだわりを持たないと逸品と呼ばれるものは生まれません。
そしてその他より秀でた何かを見極め、選び抜く工程が最高の食材へと辿り着く鍵となります。
 
これこそが厳選であり、私たちは目利きと呼びます。
 
私達には創業以来積み上げてきた“目利きの技”があります。
ぜにやの食材はこんなにも味が違うものなのかと感動してくださるお客様の為に
私たちはこれからも日本で一番美味しい品をお届けしていきます
 
無添加はもう当たり前、その先にある確実な美味しさと安心安全を胸を張ってお約束します。
ぜにやのすべての商品は酸化防止剤・化学調味料・添加物、一切無添加です。

ぜにや外観

江戸時代、天保三年(西暦1832年)一月、銭屋(現ぜにや)は、岐阜町(現岐阜市)で乾物卸商として創業しました。
※岐阜市史−史料編近代集教載

当時、岐阜は東海道と中仙道の要にあって、さまざまな物資が岐阜を経由して各地へ流通していましたが、銭屋はこの中継の地にある乾物卸商として、おもに信州(長野県)、甲州(山梨県)方面への商いを行っておりました。明治末期、鉄道の開通にともなって、これらの地方向けから地元への卸売になりましたが、当社の品質重視の姿勢はお客様から広く支持され、質の良い商品を扱う店として、地元で高い評価と信用を得るようになりました。


Our Story

Gifu has one of the oldest Japanese ingredient food shop in Japan – Zeniya, which opened in 1832 and is currently run by the seventh generation of the Naganuma family to do so.
 
Zenbei Naganuma started his career working in a dried food store in Gifu, Japan around 1830.  He enjoyed leading a simple life, but after learning that his wife was expecting their first child, he became more serious about providing his family with a better life so he started thinking about starting his own business.

From his experience, he understood that there was demand in Nagano and Kanazawa for certain dried foods, such as bonito, kelp, and shiitake mushrooms.  Unfortunately, at the time, there was no easy transportation from Gifu, so Zenbei made his first trip to Nagano by foot.  Carrying a large pack filled with dried food, he walked seven days to cross the mountain range between the two towns.  During the trip, he was surprised by cold weather and at one point, resorted to pouring warm sake into his shoes to prevent frostbite.
 
After arriving at Nagano, he was welcomed by locals who were ecstatic to have the food that he had brought and after the initial success, he founded Zeniya in 1832.  Though times have changed dramatically and the trip from Gifu to our customers is much quicker, we still proudly carry on the family tradition through seven generations to deliver delicious food and enjoy the same sense of satisfaction that Zenbei did from happy satisfied customers.
