BROADER FOUNDATION BETWEEN EXPORTERS

 

- My goal is to establish a broader foundation between Norwegian exporters and Indian companies that can enhance delivery of seafood products from Norway to the Indian consumer. In this respect, I will utilize my contacts to seek out importers, distributors, retail outlets, hotels and restaurants in India that are involved in the marketing and sale of fresh and frozen fish, says Shergill.

Norwegian companies are already exporting salmon to some cities in India, however there is a need for stronger links between the Indian and Norwegian seafood industry that can benefit both countries.
