Connect One-On-One with Buyers at Fall Inbound Shellfish Mission

Learn more about Food Export–Northeast's upcoming Inbound Shellfish Mission on September 20, 2023!

Food Export–Northeast will be hosting an Inbound Shellfish Mission on September 16-21, 2023. A small group of qualified international buyers is planning to attend and will take part in education sessions in Boston and on Cape Cod. Food Export has set aside Wednesday, September 20, for one-on-one meetings between suppliers and buyers. 

“Face-to-face meetings with buyers are an excellent opportunity to build direct relationships and learn about potential market export opportunities, which can ultimately lead to sales,” said Colleen Coyne, Food Export’s Seafood Program Coordinator.

How are Buyers Qualified?

Food Export In-Market Representatives invite and pre-qualify all attending buyers, focusing only on those international buyers who are interested in the products being showcased and in building connections with Northeast suppliers.

“While Massachusetts is currently the only U.S. state permitted to engage in shellfish trade with the EU, another New England state may be added to that list by the end of the summer, which would be good news for Northeast shellfish growers,” said Coyne.
