Connect Directly with International Seafood Buyers with the Virtual Rep Finder

Travel restrictions are still hampering most international travel. But you can still meet buyers! See how you can connect virtually with seafood buyers around the globe with our Virtual Rep Finder service.

With seafood tradeshow cancellations and foodservice sector disruption over the past year, it’s been more challenging for suppliers to connect with international seafood buyers and promote their unique Northeast US seafood products overseas. To help suppliers discover new buyers and reconnect with existing partners, Food Export–Northeast has a service called Virtual Rep Finder–one part of our Market Builder program–that matches companies with targeted buyers and arranges one-on-one virtual meetings.

What is the Virtual Rep Finder Service?

Suppliers work directly with our In-Market Representative(s) to get connected to targeted buyers and have direct meetings with importers via Zoom. The In-Market Representative(s) will review your export goals with you in a kick-off call and match your company with buyers that align with your products and growth vision.

Virtual Meetings with Qualified Buyers

Based on your conversations with the In-Market Representative, you’ll be set up with three one-on-one virtual meetings with qualified importers. An In-Market Representative will assist in communication, interpretation, and moderation of meetings, if desired.
