Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: Nueva Pescanova launches low cost products

Friday, September 04, 2020

The new normal brings with it a new economic reality. This is the one that most worries companies, which try to avoid as much as possible the bite that the covid may end up leaving in their accounts. Nueva Pescanova is no exception. The company is aware that the economic crisis derived from the pandemic will reduce consumption and has sought a low-cost vaccine to immunize itself against a drop in sales that is almost certain.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: 69% drop in China exports

Friday, September 04, 2020

China delivered the biggest export hit to Norwegian salmon farmers during August, according to the country’s seafood council.

A year ago it was the largest growth market by far, but because of Covid-19 and the various scares around the pandemic, sales have slumped. Salmon exports alone to China fell by 69 per cent when compared to August last year, figures show. And it is not just salmon – other types of seafood have suffered almost as much.

Seafood sales to China in August totalled 7,600 tonnes and were worth NOK 214 million. This is a volume decrease of 43 per cent and a drop in value of 54 per cent.
