Vale Harry Peters AM

Dear Friends,

It is our sad duty to inform you that Mr Harry Peters AM, Managing Director of Marine Product Marketing Pty Ltd, passed away on Tuesday morning (3/12/19) after a heart attack.  He was at home with his family at the time.  Harry was 76 years old and still very active in the company until then.

Harry was a pioneer of seafood importing and founded Marine Product Marketing in 1986.  His long-term association and friendship with Japanese frozen food company, Nichirei, began soon after that.

He was an active member of the Seafood Importers Association of Australasia and was its chairman between 2000 and 2009, regularly travelling to Canberra to attend government consultative committees.  In 2018 he was awarded life membership of SIAA. (Harry had been chairman of SIAA’s predecessor, the Quick Frozen Seafood Importers Association, as far back at 1985).

Harry was a generous and compassionate man who was popular for his outstanding character and support for the seafood industry in Australia.
