In May 2009, the International Food Service company, Delaware North took a bold step to go into sushi production on their own. As a supplier to Delaware North in the WACA (Western Australia Cricket Association), JAS Sushi, the origins of Sushi Machines Australia was an obvious choice to assist them with their new venture.
The project, Noriba, meaning a ‘transport hub’ in Japanese, was located in the Qantas Domestic Airport in Melbourne. The busy location plus the healthy food offering is sure to make this venture a success.
Sushi Machine was engaged for it’s expertise to supply, install and train a team who have limited knowledge of sushi production. It took just 2 days of intensive training and they were able to create fantastic sushi that was so impressive, it sold out on the first day of opening. Wayne Richardson, the Food Development Manager of Delaware North was very appreciative and wrote a reference letter to Melvin Wee, MD of Sushi Machines, stating that “your experience was invaluable in setting up of the systems needed for sushi production.”
