GAA Attending 3rd Chinese Food Material Festival

For the second consecutive year, the Global Aquaculture Alliance is attending the Chinese Food Material Festival in Wuhan, China, from March 27 to 29, 2015.

Held at the Wuhan International Conference & Exhibition Centre, the three-day expo, which is in its third year, is organized by Wuhan Lanesync Supply Chain Management Co. Ltd.

The expo features more than 300 suppliers in 15,000 square meters of exhibit space and more than 14,000 visitors, including thousands of retail and foodservice buyers. It’s billed as China’s largest annual food products and ingredients expo.

Last year, GAA signed a memorandum of understanding with Wuhan Lanesync, in which the two organizations agreed to work collaboratively to cross-promote the organizations’ activities and to advance responsible aquaculture. As part of the agreement, GAA was designated as a supporting partner of the expo.

Based in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, Wuhan Lanesync handles purchasing, distribution, logistics, marketing, processing and other activities for more than 35,000 restaurants and hotels throughout China and operates more than 200 Xianzhilong retail outlets and seven warehouses.
