SUSHI CHAMPION COMPETITION

As a leader in innovation, Bento Sushi created the Sushi Champion competition – a company-wide contest held annually that aims to highlight the tremendous talent and creativity of our very own Bento Chefs.

Every year, all of our Bento Chefs across Canada and the United States are invited to get creative and submit a sushi roll design of their own. The top 6 rolls chosen in regional competitions get a chance to compete in the National Finals, where one winning roll is chosen by our panel of judges. The Chef of the winning roll is awarded the Sushi Champion title!

There’s a little bit of nerves up here… was the Haruo roll! Haruo-san!

Second last time… congratulations.
Thank you very much.
Haruo-san will actually walk away with a cheque for five thousand dollars for making that, so he’s done pretty well!
