Food Export - Northeast held an event at Boston University focused on educating our In-Market Representatives on American lobster and Jonah crab.
Prior to the first in-person Seafood Expo North America show in a few years, Food Export–Northeast held an event on March 12th at Boston University focused on educating our In-Market Representatives on American lobster and Jonah crab. Pre-vetted seafood buyers from China, Hong Kong, Northern and Southern Europe, Mexico, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom were also invited to attend the all-day education sessions.
Many of our partners, collaborators and industry experts participated in the agenda that included the following sessions:
“It was interesting to see our In-Market Representatives and their guest buyers get excited about the various formats these products come in,” said Colleen Coyne, Seafood Program Coordinator for Food Export–Northeast. “We look forward to seeing everyone take these learnings back to their markets and share the value of purchasing Northeast US seafood with international audiences.”
