How it all began

Mark Zaslavsky The company could not have gained its worldwide reputation without Mark Zaslavsky, a Ukrainian émigré who moved from a country with a hard regime to Miami in 1980 in pursuit of fertile ground for free enterprise.

Mark Zaslavsky has achieved success in life due to all of his hard work and says that in the beginning of his life, he worked as a dishwasher and a short-order cook before scraping together enough money to open a small deli-grocery.

The empire of delicacies' import and export began in 1983 with the opening of a small shop that sold imported caviar and smoked salmonon 79th Street in Miami. Gradually, the assortment of the “Russian shop”, as it was then called, expanded — Russian candies and cakes, more caviar, exotic truffles, foie gras, meats and cheeses, fine wines and champagnes were added.

A successful tree grows from a strong sprout

The reason why a small shop of Miami scale grew into a world-renowned, large merchant of elite products is because of the great reputation that surrounds the firm due to properly meeting obligations to partners and customers and only supplying products in their best quality.

The supply of desired goods at reasonable prices was successful and attracted more customers, thereby expanding the range of imported goods to include seafood, tea, oil, spices and more.

A good reputation and extensive assortment of first-class products both played an important role in the 1990s when the company was able to reach a new level and begin supplying delicacies to restaurants, hotels, and grocery stores.

To large national players and major grocery stores in the Caribbean, Marky’s acts like a partner. The company strictly complies with any and all obligations and has a well-coordinated logistic and organizational structure.

Success in wholesale supply does not prevent the company from taking care of its direct purchasers, as was seen when new fish egg sales opened in 1999.

The horizon wasn’t always cloudless

There were times when the company development prospects did not seem successful. It seems like the government’s ban on the import of wild beluga in the form of whole fish and products from it in 2005 was introduced just so the development of business could be prevented. However, in the spirit of a true entrepreneur, Marky’s knew that each obstacle entails new opportunities. Since sturgeon caviar could not be imported from previous sources for the time being, the opportunity to grow the relevant species of fish on farms in the country appeared.

The prudent decision to open Sturgeon Aqua Farms, one of Marky’s business units, has helped the company thrive as a supplier of caviar by engaging in the cultivation of valuable fish in artificial conditions.

The unit, originally estimated as a project, requires a lot of funding and means to provide a great return on its investment. Today, it has become the main source of legal caviar, meeting all legal requirements.

The treasure trove of taste

Marky's is now proud to have expanded its range of supplied goods to 7 thousand products.

Marky's Showroom The company still makes an emphasis on roe of valuable fish species. Today, you can find 21 species of diverse caviar, including the traditional classic black sturgeon caviar, the salmon roe, and the exotic red tobiko sushi caviar. Marky's is an expert when it comes to this food, and the company offers its customers a variety of forms of caviar and roe: fresh, frozen, or shelf stable.

Marky's online store is very popular among cheese fans because the dairy delicatessen range includes more than 600 different types produced in 12 different countries. Just imagine for a moment how you would feel if you entered the store and saw this huge number of cheeses at one time.

At Marky's, all of these cheeses are gathered into one collection which includes the Brie cheese, Camembert, Gouda, Parmesan, Blue-Veined сheese, and hundreds of others, and you can choose the sort you like among the wide variety!

Marky's is the shop where various delicacies from Europe coexist:duck foie gras, French black and white Italian truffles, golden olive oil, Spanish ham and all the favorite pasta.

The range of products is so wide that it allows for anyone to pick up ingredients for anything you can think of. Main dishes, soups, side dishes, hot and cold appetizers, and desserts can all easily be made. The number of different sauces and spices, designed to improve the taste of your food, captures the imagination!

Not only content, but also forms

In addition to gourmet products, the online shop offers refined solutions to them. The shining ware and the metallic luster of equipment for banquets are perfect matches for serving delicacies and can enchant with both their elegance and functionality.

Chrome kitchen devices, silver serving elements, utilitarian glass containers — according to the executive chef Marc Navailles, these things must coexist with the delicacies in your kitchen.

Spreading the culture

Christopher Hubb To spread the culture of gourmet food, the company is expanding its retail trade and has filled the high shelves of Marky’s Gourmet Store in Miami, the Caviar & More kiosk in the Aventura Mall, the Beluga Bar also in the Aventura Mall, and the online store. Delicacy meat, cheese, wine, and caviar can be found at any of these very accessible locations.

One of the directions in development is a comprehensive party service. A new unit, called Catering by Marky’s, was established, and it engages in the planning and organization from anything like small home parties to major fashion events.

The company also plans to open new outlets offering prepared foods combined with cafes and cheese-making demonstrations.

Health and safety

Caring for the health and food safety of clients and their families is a cornerstone of Marky’s corporate policy. The many specialists from the company’s quality control department are called to monitor that users are receiving only high quality and certified products that are manufactured legally and in an environmentally friendly way. Marky's is the first company that cares about its customers at the molecular level and requires DNA batch tests for each consignment of caviar. The high culture of processing and storage of products is confirmed by an authoritative certificate HACCP.

The company advocates a responsible attitude towards the environment and cares for the endangered fish species by investing huge amounts of money into the project for humane breeding of sturgeon and beluga in the farms.

Quality control coverage of the corporation is not only U.S. territory. Marky's experts regularly travel around the world in order to ensure the production safety of commodity partners.
