Richard Donnelly, market research and intelligence executive with BIM, said it is necessary to get high value product to overseas markets quickly.
“Airfreight is clearly the best way to do this. In the last year alone, we have oysters being exported to Hong Kong twice a week and salmon airfreighted to the US.
“Air freight can be a vital means for Irish seafood companies to access high value markets across the globe,” he said.
BIM has developed a new website to get key information to the Irish seafood industry as it becomes increasingly globalised and subject to rapid change.
