AUSTRALIA - Clean Seas Tuna, the South Australian Aquaculture company has signed a distribution agreement with French supermarket chain Intermarche.

Chairman Hagan Stehr, announcing the deal at today's annual general meeting in Adelaide, said the trial of two tonnes of Kingfish would be air-freighted to France this weekend - and in 250 shops - from early next week.

According to AdelaideNow, he said the trial was a key sales deal for the future of the company.

"This deal has taken us nine or 10 months, but in the end we have got there. If we are successful in this, (our sales) will be a lot higher by Christmas and after Christmas," he told AdelaideNow.

"If you have Intermarche, you will get some of the others."

Clean Seas Tuna already has a distribution agreement with Sainsbury's in Britain, but a full agreement with Intermarche would take the product through the chain's 1500 French stores and 500 stores throughout Belgium, Portugal, Spain, Poland, Bosnia and Romania.
