Other Media | Faro de Vigo: The greater consumption of frozen fish mitigates the 'worrying' decline in fresh fish

Thursday, June 06, 2024

The change in consumer habits is one of the dynamics that companies pay the most attention to. In an ultra-competitive scenario like the current one, in which the neighbor is a rival but also the one who produces in the antipodes, the important thing is not where one is but how far one is capable of going and at what price one does it; Hence, the priority of companies is to be more efficient, save on costs and invest in logistics, all with the ultimate objective of building customer loyalty. In the case of seafood, in addition to competing with each other, they do so with many other protein foods that also fight to get into the shopping baskets.
