Food Export–Northeast plans to add more video content to the American Lobster products buyer’s guide. It will be a tutorial style video with Chef Barton Seaver detailing American lobster product formats and their usage so that overseas buyers have a clear vision of the different product formats and their applications. We’ll let you know when that video has been added since we know it will be extremely valuable to buyers. Videos will be available in multiple languages.
Over the next few months, this online resource will be expanded to include a comprehensive toolkit for live lobster and Jonah crab and Food Export-Northeast plans to add oysters in 2021. We encourage you to explore the online resource and hope you will share this tool with your buyers. You can view the toolkit here.
