The Québec pavilion at the European Seafood Exposition in Brussels was the gathering place for Québec companies invited to present and showcase their sea products in April.

Considered Europe’s largest fish and seafood exposition, the 21nd edition, together with its twin, Seafood Processing Europe, attracted over 25,000 industry professionals as well as 1,500 exhibitors from over 70 countries.

Caroline Emond, the Québec Delegate General in Brussels, attended the exposition to lend her support to the Québec companies. She took the opportunity to meet with the representatives of the Québec Fish Processors Association.

Numerous Québec sea products were promoted at the exposition, including fresh, frozen, smoked and processed lobster, seafood, and a wide variety of fish.

Under the auspices of the Agri-Food Export Group, the Québec representatives haled from:

  • Poissonnerie de Cloridorme and Crustacés Des Monts, under the Great Northern Products banner
  • Sogelco International Inc.
  • Gaspé Cured
  • Les producteurs et pêcheurs du Sud de la Gaspésie
  • Dégust-Mer
  • Crustacés de Malbaie and La Crevette du Nord Atlantique Inc.
  • Unipêche MDM

Focus on Benelux

The mission of the Québec General Delegation in Brussels, which opened in 1972, is to raise the profile of Québec and promote its interests in Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands and with European institutions.

Its Economic Affairs Department is charged with promoting dialogue between Québec and Benelux companies in order to increase the number of business partnerships.

It also provides information and support services for Québec companies interested in doing business in Benelux countries.
