Growing demand

Discover new sources of supply

Consumption and expenditure on fish and seafood in the European Union is growing year on year. At the same time Europe’s wild catches and aquaculture production is declining. The European seafood sector is therefore increasingly reliant on imports. In addition, consumers are attaching more and more importance to the fact that the seafood they buy comes from sustainable sources.

As an importer, you face the challenge of finding suppliers of sustainable fish and seafood. This is where we from IPD come in. We provide you with reliable producers with transparent supply chains that meet the international standards.

We support companies that prioritise sustainability and social responsibility. When selecting our producers, we therefore look for certifications such as MSC, ASC, BAP or GlobalG.A.P. or participation in a fishery or aquaculture improvement project (AIP/FIP).

We have already identified highly qualified fishing companies in Peru that are able to supply the European market sustainably and fairly.

We introduce you to carefully selected seafood companies at European trade fairs or virtual B2B events and arrange direct contact for you. Thanks to our preparation, you will meet business partners who know what is important to European importers. At the same time, the companies in the IPD partner countries are given the opportunity to operate on the international market and creating new jobs in their countries – a win-win situation for both sides.

Our programme saves you time in sourcing new suppliers, gives you more clarity about the supply chain and the company you are sourcing from, as well as more safety in terms of reliability, sustainability and fairness of seafood supply.

We put you in touch with reliable exporters of sustainable seafood – neutrally and free of charge.
