The Asian market shows a rebound of Salmon exports to the Philippines after the government has lifted restrictions after the pandemic. The market is seeing a gradual increase in demand for fresh salmonoids in the Philippines (report from Seafood from Norway as of May 2023) vs. processed seafood.
Norway is also looking at further utilizing the existing free trade agreement (FTA) with the Philippines, which entered into force last 2018 and includes tariff free entry of goods from member states including such as Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Iceland.
The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Manila also hosted a business matching reception at the Convention Center, inviting around fifty industry players to expand network and business opportunities for seafood.
The Norwegian Seafood Pavilion is in cooperation with Royal Norwegian Seafood, one of the leading seafood exporters in the Philippines with 23 years of experience in the industry. The Pavilion also featured an exciting demonstration of handling salmon meat from Chef Erling Rune.
An estimate of around 37 million meals is produced from the fisheries industry of Norway, every day. “Our seafood industry has one of the most advanced technologies, and we make sure that most of our seafood is based on sustainable practices. This is why Norwegian seafood is the best in the world,” said top diplomat from Norway.
