Virtual B2B Meetings: Fish and Seafood from Central America

Fish on ice

Are you interested in discovering new fish and seafood suppliers? The Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries (CBI) connects you with reliable, high-quality suppliers equipped to do business with a European partner. Within its Connecting Central America initiative, CBI helps SMEs and cooperatives become more competitive in the European market. The initiative is co-financed by the European Union and coordinated by SIECA.

Many trade fairs have been cancelled due to COVID-19, including SEG and CONXEMAR 2020. Because of this, CBI now helps you virtually meet carefully selected fish and seafood producers and exporters from Central America.

Meet quality fish and seafood suppliers from Central America

Connecting Central America presents fish and seafood companies from Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama. These companies are ready to enter the European Market. They offer an interesting range of products. For example, products range from frozen seafood like quality Vannamei shrimp and Caribbean spiny lobster to fresh fish like grouper, wild and farmed snapper, mahi-mahi, swordfish and tuna.

Many of the exports currently go to the USA or Asia. Still, the Central American companies offer numerous products that appeal to the European market as well. In 2012, the Association Agreement was signed between the EU and the Central American region. This has improved conditions for trade.

Opportunities for EU buyers

  • Arranged online meetings with carefully evaluated fish and seafood producers and exporters. Producers and exporters are selected based on your requirements. Online meetings can take place from the comfort of your (home) office at a time of your choosing;
  • Detailed information about the companies and their product offer;
  • Support from an experienced CBI expert during the online meetings;
  • All companies are familiar with online meetings and have prepared for this with CBI.
