The Cuenet Group from Noumea, New Caledonia appointed Sushi Machines of Australia as the Turnkey Project Manager for their new sushi project.

Tanuki Sushi in New Caledonia is the latest venture by the highly successful Cuenet Group. Seeking to expand their range of servings, Cuenet Group wanted to set up a sushi train; however, they lacked the sufficient expertise to carry out the massive project.

Cuenet Group contacted Sushi Machines, owned by Melvin Wee who has many years of experience owning and running sushi businesses as well as supplying sushi machines and providing consultancy services. As the new Turnkey Project Manager, Sushi Machines was fully responsible for the setup and start-up of Cuenet Group’s new project.

Sushi Machines’ scope of work included designing, supply and installing the sushi conveyor system to fit the two-shop space; supply of Fujimak 3-deck electric rice cooker; supply of Kitanihon automatic sushi plates washer; and two full sets of Autec sushi machines comprising of 2 Maki robots, 2 Nigiri robots, 2 Maki cutters and 2 sushi rice mixers.

Sushi Machines was also responsible for the supply of Japanese ingredients, crockery and packaging for the full range of sushi and Japanese hot food.

Melvin made several trips to Noumea to design the layout, source local supporting equipment supplies, install, commission and run the conveyor belt system, and also train all their kitchen staff on the preparation and final production of the full range of sushi and Japanese hot food. Melvin also advised the frontline staff about running the sushi business efficiently.

Melvin was able to complete the whole installation and training in just three weeks including customs clearance and receiving all sushi machines from Japan, the conveyor from Singapore and ingredients from Australia. The Tanuki Sushi Train impressed the locals during the soft opening of the sushi shop.

Tanuki is considering another location and has confirmed that they will use Melvin of Sushi Machines again for their next project.
