"Over the three-day event, hundreds of exhibiting companies will launch their latest seafood products or services intended for the Asian market," says Ms. Terri Tsang, Show Director for Seafood Expo Asia.
"The New Product Showcase gives buyers who are looking for new business ideas and products, an opportunity to discover some of the newest products entering the market, identify trends in the industry and explore the latest culinary advances - all in one location."
Some of this year's new products include:
Frozen Prepared Greenland Halibut Steak, Koji Flavour - (Yen & Friends Enterprise Company Limited)
This delicate, flakey textured Greenland halibut steak is subtly infused with the delicious flavours of Koji, a traditional Japanese sauce made from a natural fermentation of rice yeast, water and salt. Easy to cook, the fish is frozen to preserve the freshness of the halibut with a Koji infusion that offers a distinctive Asian flair.
Frozen Australian Greenlip Abalone Meat "Abalone King" - (Seabo International Limited)
The Southern Australian coastline provides the perfect growing environment for these wild-caught abalone. Succulent and tasty, the abalone develops its flavour from the cold waters off these shores where the salt content is high, the water movement frequent and the supply of seaweed healthy.
Cuttlefish Ink - (Nortindal Sea Products SL)
A gourmet ingredient, this product is obtained from ink extracted from the natural bags of the cuttlefish. Combined with water, salt and a thickening agent that together undergo a thermal treatment, the ink adds depth and drama to most notably rice and pasta dishes by enhancing the seafood flavouring and infusing the colouring.
La De esse Blanche - (Gabriel Seafood Company Limited)
This kind of oyster has a thick and crunchy meat that fills your mouth with a perfect balance between sweetness and salinity. It is characterized in taste by the territory in which oysters are cultivated, in Utah Beach, France.
