A Bit Of History
Caviar Centre is a family business that was founded by the passionate and dedicated Mark Omidi back in 1992. Mark grew up in Langarud, a city on the south coast of the Caspian Sea, which has always been the centre of Iran’s fisheries and caviar production.
As a child, Mark was introduced to caviar and his fascination and passion for this exceptional gourmet product only grew stronger with time.
In 1992, Mark formed the Caspian Pearl caviar company in partnership with a friend who was already a successful caviar entrepreneur in Spain.
Unfortunately, after only two short years, Mark’s partner decided to pull out of the venture, believing that the Canadian market was too small to warrant continued investment and time. However, this setback only motivated Mark further and strengthened his resolve to continue pursuing his passion for caviar.
Building The Foundation
Over the past 30 years, Mark and his entire family, especially his son Steven and wife Nilou, have been fully committed to the company. They have participated in dozens of trade shows across Canada to introduce caviar and its unique qualities to Canadians. Mark has even been a pioneer in the caviar industry, speaking on live television and radio about this precious and exotic commodity.
