Australian seafood exporters have reeled in fresh deals in the European Union after attending Conxemar, Europe’s largest seafood trade show, according to Austrade.
Clean Seas secured valuable new business with major importers for its sustainably farmed Gulf Spencer Kingfish. Yumbah Aquaculture inked a new deal for its greenlip abalone with one of France’s premium seafood importers. Sea Harvest’s wild-caught Shark Bay prawns are also on their way to new retailers in Europe.
Trade shows such as Conxemar can help exporters increase their profile and meet potential buyers. Austrade can represent businesses that cannot attend in person. At Conxemar, the agency hosted an Australia stand where staff engaged with buyers and passed on trade enquiries to exporters.
