                   Angelakis, is the popular public face of
                   Angelakis Bros, a family business spanning
                   three generations and the largest producer
                   and distributor of seafood, poultry and game
                   in South Australia.

                      Michael’s trademark smile is never far from
                   his face in the images that tell the story of his
                   life, with his wife and four children, cooking up
