Export guides and webinars
Seafood caught and farmed in the UK is highly sought after across the world. Our Export Guides are a valuable business support tool for seafood companies in the UK. We've also recorded webinars with seafood trade contacts.
The guides provide information on the export and trading landscape in the most important overseas markets for seafood. This includes a general overview of the economy plus detailed information on:
- Trade environments and business culture;
- Supply structure;
- Retail and food service industries;
- Regulations and tariffs,
- Certification and registration requirement
- Labelling requirements.
