Harry Peters' connection with Nichirei began in his days at All States Frozen Foods, when he marketed Nichirei crumbed calamari for the first time in Australia. It was a huge success and led Harry to work closely with Nichirei to develop other innovative products including the first hand made breaded prawn cutlet. Since starting Marine Product Marketing, Harry has continued the association with Nichirei and continued to work with them to bring new and exciting products to homes across Australia.
Founded in 1945, Nichirei Corporation is one of Japan's leading food companies, with operations spanning domestic and international food processing, research and development, including biotechnology research.
