A record number of Irish seafood companies will participate in the world’s largest seafood trade fair, Seafood Expo Global this week. Bord Bia is coordinating the 21 Irish companies that will showcase their products at the Brussels event, to 25,000 influential buyers and sellers from over 145 countries around the world.
Aidan Cotter, Chief Executive, Bord Bia said in advance of the event, “It is encouraging to see such a strong Irish presence at the Seafood Expo Global, as international trade events remain a critical business development platform for Irish exporters.
Cotter said that the Expo provides an opportunity for Irish companies to identify new customers, meet existing clients, launch new products, learn more about emerging trends and broaden their export reach into new markets. “Ireland’s seafood exports to international markets were valued at €156 million last year, an increase of 5% on the 2012 figures.”
