18/04/2017: Vietnam shrimp workshop: from farm to fork - during Seafood Expo Global 2017 in Brussels, Belgium

Seafood Expo Global in Brussels, Belgium is an annual global exposition, features more than 1,700 exhibiting companies from over 75 countries 

The Seafood Expo Global is the place for exhibitors to promote their seafood products and all related seafood- industry products/services.

One of the most important targets of the exposition is to share the sustainable development view for global seafood supply chain.

It will create a space for all exhibitors to meet up with key buyers/retailers and many dialogues or workshops where the exhibitors and related stakeholders (NGOs, countries’ policy makers, financial institutions, impact investors, and more) can discuss the best solutions for sustainable development.

With the initially positive achievements that bring social and economic benefits for small scale producers and SMEs, the project "Sustainable and Equitable Shrimp production and Value chain development in Vietnam (SusV)" has decided to participate to the Seafood Expo Global Brussel held from April 25-27, 2017, aiming to create and enhance market access, promote international standards compliance of shrimp producers and processors, build buyers’ trust in transparent value chain and influence them for inclusive investment for the production.

Taking this opportunity, during the expo, Oxfam and ICAFIS will host a workshop on afternoon of April 25 on Vietnam shrimp: from farm to fork.
