Other Media | SeafoodSource: China’s demand for special status a sticking point in WTO fishing subsidies negotiations

Friday, July 24, 2020

World Trade Organization (WTO) talks on ending harmful fishing subsidies resumed this week, and a return to intensive negotiations has been set for September. The timeline, however, creates a tight squeeze to reach the 31 December deadline for a deal.

Santiago Wills, the chairman of the talks, brought the heads of delegations together on 21 July for a plenary session, the first such in-person session in a month. But while there had been hopes recently of a pathway to a deal, there appears to be new friction between Beijing and Washington over China’s claims to developing nation status.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness:Who is the nonprofit group trying to take over Cooke’s leases in Washington state?

Thursday, July 23, 2020

Has a spanner been thrown into the works for Cooke’s plans to farm trout on the East Coast?

In the USA, Cooke’s Washington State Clam Bay, Fort Ward, Orchard Rocks and Hope Island net pens leases are being contested by the Wild Fish Conservancy (WFC).

In a press release on the 15th of July, the non-profit conservation ecology organisation wrote that it was creating an “unusual competition” to leave the state’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) with a “precedent choice to make”. Either lease the 130 acres of aquatic lands to them so it can keep Cooke’s remaining salmon farm permits in the state in a trust. Or give them to Cooke for fish farming.

Other Media | Alimarket: La Sirena will anchor its expansion in the development of the franchise to cover new markets

Thursday, July 23, 2020

The frozen store chain, La Sirena, is committed to franchising for its expansion plan in Spain, with the aim of continuing to grow throughout the national territory in the hands of local entrepreneurs. This modality is not new for the chain that already tried this commercial management formula years ago, a project that was halted when it was acquired in 2015 by the European investment fund OpCapita, based in London, and current owner of the chain. Now the company returns to resume the process from the hand of the consulting firm specialized in this form of management, Tormo Franchises.

The first phase of this expansion project towards the La Sirena franchises will consist of the selection of entrepreneurs with knowledge of business management, mainly in the communities of Madrid, Aragón, Navarra, La Rioja, the Basque Country and Valencia.
