In 1959, brothers Nick and Tony Anassis commenced operations in a single fronted retail outlet in Church Street Richmond . While one shucked oysters and tended to customers, the other peddled their wares to pubs, restaurants and cafes in and around Melbourne. Richmond Oysters was born.
From this humble beginning the small business quickly developed. It provided a growing variety of produce including fresh fish and general seafood to satisfy the needs of its customers.
Today it jointly operates as Victorian Frozen Foods Distributors Pty. Ltd. and Richmond Oysters,and that same spirit continues. With due pride we say that Nick and Tony were pioneers of a service industry which has become an integral part of food service. Their relentless zeal to provide top quality and service has become the hallmark of the company, and a benchmark for all else.
Richmond Oysters continues to operate from the original location set up by the adventurous pair - a testament to their vision. It also continues to provide a service that delivers; an extensive range of the freshest fish; the extended variety of seafood that Melbourne demands, together with a total offer in fresh and frozen general foods. And it continues to do so in the tradition set down by Nick and Tony. Indeed many of Melbourne 's successful seafood providers have learnt their trade during their formative years as Richmond Oyster employees, all of which contributes to this strong and vibrant industry.
Richmond Oysters enjoys a client base with much diversity including most Five Star hotel groups and establishments in the CBD and surrounds with many cafes and Hotels throughout the suburbs.
Together with this heritage, unparalleled prowess in Seafood, a dedicated 30 strong team and fleet of 10 vehicles, we pledge to continue that tradition.
