Marky's caviar beginning


The Beginning

The company gained its worldwide reputation from Mark Zaslavsky, a Ukrainian immigrant 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 due to his hard work, saying 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 in the USA.

The empire of delicacy imports and exports began in 1983 with the opening of a small shop that sold imported caviar and smoked salmon on 79th Street in Miami, FL by CEO’s Mark Zaslavsky and Mark Gelman. Gradually, the extension of their roots developed into the ‘Russian Store’ as it was then called. The assortment expanded to Russian goods such as candies and cakes, preserves, canned goods, wider range of  caviar, exotic truffles, foie gras, meats, cheeses, fine wines and champagnes.

A Successful Tree Grows From a Strong Sprout

The small shop in Miami grew into a large-scale world-renowned company with large merchants of elite products was due to a great reputation that surrounded the firm. By properly meeting obligations to partners, customers, standing true to the brands identity and only supplying products in their best quality was a huge factor to the success.

The supply of desired rare goods at reasonable prices such a successful that it attracted more customers, there by 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, cruise ships and grocery stores. Marky’s is and acts as a partner to large national players and major grocery stores in the Caribbean. The company strictly complies with any and all obligations as well as coordinating logistic and organizational structures. 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’s development prospects did not seem successful. The government’s ban on the import of wild Beluga in the form of whole fish and caviar 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, required a lot of funding and means to provide a great return on its investment. Today it has become the main source of legal caviar by meeting all legal requirements.

The company still makes an emphasis on the roe of valuable fish species. Today you can find 27 species of diverse caviar, including the traditional classic black sturgeon caviar, salmon roe, and exotic caviar such as tobiko sushi caviar. The company offers caviar to its customers in a variety of different forms, caviar and roe: fresh, frozen and shelf stable.
