New Zealand seafood was on show this month at the China Fisheries & Seafood Expo in Dalian, Asia’s largest seafood event.
Eight New Zealand seafood companies, including Pure NZ Greenshell Mussels, Oravida, OceaNZ Blue, Oceanus, LEE Fish, Vela Fishing, Marine Foods and Sanford exhibited as part of an NZTE coordinated New Zealand pavilion.
There were also other NZ companies exhibiting at the event independently from the NZ pavilion.
AQNZ played a pivotal facilitation role to encourage the participation of both aquaculture and wild catch companies under the New Zealand seafood banner.
AQNZ will now poll sector interest for similar stand executions to be set up at the other main international seafood shows including Asian Seafood Exposition – Hong Kong (3-5 September 2013), International Boston Seafood Show (March 2014) and the European Seafood exposition – Brussels (late April or early May 2014).
