A Barnsley business has sold its 500th sushi machine to a restaurant 8,000 miles away in South America.
SushiSushi, which started selling sushi machines in 2011, has sold the equipment to U Sushi in Tierra del Fuego Province, Argentina.
Stuart Turner, the owner of SushiSushi, developed the Roller-35 Sushi machine to allow untrained restaurant staff to produce consistent quality sushi.
In February, SushiSushi received orders from Italy, Chile, France and the USA and has even sold products to Japan.
Total sales of the manual Roller-35 Sushi Machine have reached nearly £250,000.
“Our sushi machines have gained interest in many countries, with 100 per cent of customers finding us online,” said Turner.
“It’s amazing to think that customers as far as Tierra del Fuego Province and Reunion Island near Madagascar are choosing a piece of catering equipment made in Barnsley for their hotel restaurants.”
SushiSushi, based in Mapplewell, stocks a range of products sold to restaurants, chefs, retailers and cooking enthusiasts across Europe and the rest of the world, with clients including Great British Menu judge Michael O’Hare and MasterChef runner up Andrew Kojima.
