Sushi Maki California Roll
South Florida restaurant and catering chain, Sushi Maki, has become MSC Chain of Custody certified.
Sushi Maki, the first East Coast sushi chain of restaurants in the US to obtain Chain of Custody, plans to immediately serve certified sustainable sea bass and kanikama krab (surimi) in its 16 locations throughout Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
In addition to six full service restaurants, Sushi Maki operates branded “sushi stations” at Whole Foods Markets, Milam’s Markets, The University of Miami, Florida International University, American Airlines Arena, Miami International Airport, and Ft. Lauderdale International Airport. It also serves several area hotels and food distributors. This announcement coincides with Sushi Maki opening a 7th location, in the Whole Foods Market, Pembroke Pines.
Abe Ng, CEO and CSO (Chief Sushi Officer) said, “As restaurateurs, we have a role and responsibility to educate customers about global seafood supplies and enable them to support sustainable fisheries by choosing MSC certified sustainable seafood. This is the beginning of a journey and reflects our vision, passion and commitment to sustainable sushi for generations to come.”
