Other Media | Alimarket: Alimentaria, postponed until 2021

SPAIN
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

As has happened with other competitions around the world, the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 has ended up delaying the celebration of Alimentaria while waiting for a normality that allows this type of event to be held. In this case, Fira de Barcelona has chosen to delay 2021 (from May 17 to 20), in a decision "agreed with the sector", according to a statement. In recent weeks, companies and associations have conveyed to organizers the convenience of delaying the fair to next year, while other companies hastened the deadline before making a decision that they did not see clearly.

The president of Alimentaria, Josep Lluís Bonet, stressed that “the decision supports the majority will of the productive and associative fabric of the sector, betting on holding the event in a more favorable environment and without so many limitations on international mobility.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Pelagic sector invites Greenpeace collaboration

EUROPEAN UNION
Tuesday, July 07, 2020

The Pelagic Freezer-trawler Association (PFA) has extended an invitation to Greenpeace UK, pointing out that the NGO has published inaccurate and misleading information as part of its campaign group on fishing activity in Marine Protected Areas.

According to PFA president Gerard van Balsfoort, the report comes as an unwelcome surprise, not least as the Greenpeace UK report contradicts a Memorandum of Understanding the PFA and its member companies signed with Greenpeace in the Netherlands in August 2016, lasting for ten years.

CHINA
Sunday, July 05, 2020

Demands for better food chain transparency triggered by the coronavirus are being seen as an opportunity for two providers of blockchain supply chain management solutions targeting seafood clients in China and globally.

Camberwell, Victoria, Australia-based Two Hands has opened an office in Shanghai in order to lure Chinese clients to its solutions.
