Business with Passion and Spice *RERUN
We follow Nitin Hingarh who runs a Tokyo company selling ingredients from his native India to restaurants around Japan. With the impact of COVID on food service, he had to shift gears. He opened a branch of his grocery store in Tokyo's Little India with the help of a Japanese supermarket veteran, and is now trying to have Indian chili peppers grown for the first time in Japan. We also meet Hungarian Mate Varga, a UI designer living in Japan who's been working from home due to the pandemic.
Nitin collaborated with 70-year-old retail veteran Ezaki Yozo to open a new store.
Thanks to Ezaki's hard work and ideas, the company's store in Tokyo's Little India is a hit.
The first Indian green chili peppers grown in Japan are explosively hot!
To beat the loneliness caused by working remotely, Mate keeps in touch with his colleagues online.
