Welcome the Norwegian Seafood Council’s annual seafood Seminar in Madrid.

Norwegian seafood seminar 2017

With a rapid growth in import of Norwegian salmon and cod over the last 5 years to the Spanish market and a continuously growing demand of convenience among the consumers, the need for market insight and knowledge is more important than ever.

In the seminar we will look into topics such as the importance of a stable quality of whitefish and the possible growth of other whitefish products to Spain, a summarize of the Skrei season and the situation of salted cod.
A look into what has happened with salmon consumption in 2016 and what needs to happen to get back on track.  

The Seafood Seminar in Madrid offers an opportunity for dialogue and update on the Spanish market and the status of Norwegian Seafood.

After the seminar, it will be a nice tasting of Norwegian seafood prepared by our chef ambassador Hung Fai.
