Norwegian trade increases
GRIMSBY is driving the strengthening relationship with Norway when it comes to seafood supplies, with salmon imports growing by more than 30 per cent.
A recent report from third quarter figures has revealed how both salmon and cod (up 3 per cent) are increasing year-on-year.
It follows specific events held both in Grimsby and in Bergen, at North Atlantic Seafood Forum, Norway's world-renowned annual industry conference.
Simon Dwyer, who chairs the trade corridor work of Humber Seafood Institute, said: "Since the Norway Day Workshop held at Humber Seafood Institute last year we've seen a great deal of activity between the Grimsby and Humber based processors and the sellers and suppliers of seafood from Norway. The increase in sales of key species is pleasing and I'm sure there is more growth to come. The Trade Corridor will continue to support the Humber Seafood Cluster in further strengthening trade links with Norway."

Reductions in the salmon prices have also played a part, underlined with the 30 per cent increase seeing a 10 per cent growth in revenue.
Saucy Fish Co, Seachill's rapidly growing brand, is one key importer in Grimsby, and the Norwegian export body has also expressed a desire to set up a base in the UK. Grimsby, with its links to the UK retail sector, would be a prime choice.
