A Portuguese company from Madeira Island specialized in the production and commercialization of fish and seafood products (fresh and frozen), including limpets among others, is looking for trade intermediaries (distributors/agents/representatives). The company is interested in establishing commercial agency or distribution services agreements.
This Portuguese company from Madeira Island was established in 1992 starting its activity in 1996. It is the main distributor of fish in the region and it was the first company in Portugal which was offering black scabbard fish fillets, which is a very healthy fish with a high nutritional value. In 2004 began fish farming (aquaculture) with gilthead seabream. Although the core business is preparing black scabbard fish fillets, the company also produces and sells various species of fish and shellfish, wild and aquaculture, fresh and frozen. Main products: Frozen black scabbard fish (fillets and fish eggs) Fresh tuna Gilthead seabream fresh / frozen Limpets (fresh, frozen and pickled) Dry skipjack. Given that some species do not exist in the sea of Madeira, they are imported with the quality assurance of suppliers. The company currently works with demanding markets, fulfilling very stringent requirements, particularly with regard to food safety / HACCP. The company is looking for other EU companies to establish commercial agency or distribution services agreements, because it is interested in selling its products abroad, thus expanding its business to other markets. The company intends long term commitments.
Innovations and advantages
Through this partnership, potential partners have the opportunity to enrich their offer/product range, with healthy products with a high nutritional value. Potential partners can also benefit from working with a partner with 20 years of experience in the seafood sector and high knowledge of the market. There is a potential for the products to cross-over into other sectors, since both can be sold to final consumers through grocery stores or supermarkets for home use, or to restaurants and hotels taking into account that are greatly appreciated by chefs.
