Thursday, December 01, 2022

IN BRIEF - Frozen food special feature: Steady growth due to continued demand for eating at home

Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Sudden yen depreciation in the second half Increase value and secure profits

In the frozen food industry, 2022 was a year in which frozen foods for home use were firm, and frozen foods for commercial use rode the wave of recovery in the restaurant market due to the continued demand for eating at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In terms of the business environment, in addition to the soaring raw material prices that have continued since last year, rising energy costs toward the second half of this year, soaring packaging and logistics costs, and a sharp depreciation of the yen are putting pressure on earnings at an unprecedented pace.

Due to a series of unusual price revisions, in terms of sales, although each manufacturer has secured an increase in sales, it is not enough to cover the profit, and it is forced to struggle.

Trade in 90% of sharks caught will now be under control

Fishing warns of the shortcut that ecologists have found through CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) to achieve what they do not achieve so easily in regional fishing organizations (ORP): hinder the extractive sector activity. A route that did not report results for them a few years ago with the bluefin tuna, but that was successful with the mako.

Other Media | iPac.acuicultura: November 30, Aquaculture Day

Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Since 2012, and under the coordination of the Spanish Aquaculture Observatory of the Biodiversity Foundation, Spain celebrates Aquaculture Day on November 30. It does so with the collaboration of all the agents linked to the aquaculture sector and with a clear purpose: to transfer to society the potential of this activity in our country, its important role in the supply of top quality food; its commitment to sustainability and R+D+i as well as the creation of employment, wealth and well-being in the areas where it operates, both on the coast and inland.

Thus, and to celebrate the dynamism and the commitment to the sustainability of the aquaculture activity in Spain, publicizing both the sector and the benefits of aquaculture products, a series of activities has been organized that I am not today, but in days before and after November 30
