Gadre Marine- India’s Largest Surimi Producer

Gadre Marine- India’s Largest Surimi Producer

Founded in 1978 by Mr. Deepak Gadre, Gadre Marine Export was originally a processing and packaging unit of frozen marine products such as shrimps, squids, cuttlefish and other fin-fish. In 1994 however an unprecedented and bold step was taken, India’s first and only Surimi manufacturing plant was set up in Ratnagiri. Gadre Marine since then became the third largest Surimi** manufacturer in the world.

What is Surimi? Surimi (a  Japanese  word ) is an edible paste made from processed fish or other meat. It is used to imitate the texture/color of the meat of lobster, crab etc. The production process includes – Descaling of Fish wherein the fish meat, skin, bones and scales are separated.
In 2004 the company under the leadership of its Managing Director, Mr Arjun Gadre set up a Surimi** value added products plant with a wide product line encompassing surimi value added products, marinated ready to cook fish and cut n cleaned raw fish. Gadre challenges the very roots of Indian culture where fish is always served fresh; their authentic frozen seafood touches the very essence of modern Indians looking for a simpler, healthier and tastier alternative.
Gadre Marine has roped in Vikas Khanna-an award winning Indian chef as their brand ambassador. With this association the brand aims to change the perception about frozen seafood in India and create more awareness about its specialities. Gadre challenges the very roots of Indian culture where fish is always served fresh; their authentic frozen seafood touches the very essence of modern Indians looking for a simpler, healthier and tastier alternative.

Upcoming Artist on the Block- Bahaar Dhawan

Upcoming Artist on the Block- Bahaar Dhawan

Bahaar is a self-taught Artist whose works are embed with soul and passion. She has taken the path of a full-time artist only since June 2015 prior to which she spent over five years working with leading law firm Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas. While her stint at Amarchand gave her the opportunity to work on several high stake matters, earning her plenty client recognition; painting remained in her heart and soul.

Each canvas is brought to life under Bahaar’s artistic strokes, which are bold, visceral and dramatic. Her art is unique and her style extremely versatile. She is a fearless and uses a range of different mediums. After years of practising law, she has developed an innate sense of storytelling through her works. 
Bahaar’s work is truthful and self reflective, whether it is incandescent murmurings from the animals filled with a flurry of colours and quirk, her meditative abstracts which are loaded with texture or the tranquillizing faces. Her art takes you into a trance yet leaves you fulfilled with inner bliss. The range of expression clearly demonstrate that her art knows no boundaries, no silver linings yet the recourse to what we face every day is so recognizable. Bahaar’s is a quest that goes beyond form, yet pulsates with an awareness of a larger order, revealing gleaming epiphanies. Each of her work is a reflection of her energetic personality, which is experimental and spontaneous.
Bahaar’s Mentors: 
Bahaar’s paintings are an outcome of the marriage of very different disciplines, law and the freedom of an artist detached from straightjacket of definition and boundaries. She is also greatly influenced by Scandinavian and American contemporary artists. Hence, an important part of Bahaar’s work is transfiguration of the perceived form, almost like deconstruction and abstract expressionism. She is also an avid admirer of Late Mr. J.Sabavala’s and Mr. Shakti Burman’s artworks amongst the Indian artists.
