The story is reported in detail in Fin24.

Mediterranean Delicasies is a business born out of necessity. Thirty years ago, Tony Nichas was working in the chemical business. He was Greek and, by default, loved to cook.

Mediterranean Delicacies was born in Nichas’ kitchen in 1988. It started out supplying just one ingredient to catering companies and restaurants in the Western Cape: tarama – the fish roe used as a base for the oily dip taramasalata, almost always part of Greek meze spreads.

Since then they have grown and expanded geographically, business content and sector wise – read the whole story on line!
