  • Seafood From Norway is Responding to Food Security Demand in Thailand and Asia at THAIFEX – Anuga Asia 2023

    Rising food prices and environmental challenges are causing stress to the food systems across the globe. The seafood industry, as a provider of sustainable alternative supply of high-quality protein, plays an important role, with Norway, being the world’s second largest seafood exporter, helping to address and improve food security issues in Thailand, Asia, and beyond.   This year, at THAIFEX – Anuga Asia 2023, the Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) welcomed more than 20 Norwegian exporters at the Seafood from Norway Pavilion to showcase a wide range of premium seafood and the latest aquaculture innovation and technology presenting huge trade growth and opportunities for small-scale through large-scall businesses across Southeast Asia. The event was honored by H.E. Mrs. Astrid Emilie Helle, Ambassador of Norway to Thailand, Norwegian Seafood Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Christian Chramer, with on-ground activities including seafood seminar and a cooking demonstration by Chef Jimmy Chok, a Seafood from Norway ambassador chef, best known for his creation of innovative recipes that blend Asian ingredients with western-style cooking.   Asbjørn Warvik Rørtveit, Southeast Asia Regional Director, Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC), said, “Norwegian seafood such as Salmon, Fjord Trout and Norwegian Saba are products of sustainable farming and fisheries that have been enjoyed by most Thais for the past 10 years. The Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) has promoted knowledge on innovation in aquaculture and sustainability in Thailand. The Seafood from Norway trademark, a symbol of origin for Norwegian seafood caught or raised in the cold clear waters of Norway, has been beneficial to the aquaculture industry, as well as Thai consumers and local businesses in identifying the source of sustainable alternative supply of high-quality protein. In 2022, Norway exported a total of 42,636 tons in volume and THB 9.37 billion in value to Thailand. Thai consumers value quality products that have a food safety standard from a trusted country of origin. This makes Norwegian seafood a bridge that connects Norway to Thailand.”   The Norwegian Seafood industry provides 40 million daily meals of seafood, totaling 2.9 million tons, worth THB 510 billion to 150 countries across the globe every year. Responsible management of marine resources is at the very core of the Norwegian seafood industry and has been for more than a century. Norway has gone from free fishing to strict regulations by learning from the past and setting the standard on sustainable ocean management for others to follow.   Erling Rimestad, The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Norway, recently paid a visit to Thailand to discuss trade and cooperation. The Deputy Minister stated that, “The goal for Norwegian aquaculture is to make healthy food more affordable for all, while reducing the impact of food production on the environment. Norway has been a flag bearer on sustainability for decades, working with partners to put laws in place to protect fish stocks by exporting our fisheries management expertise to other fishing nations who are looking to build and maintain sustainable stocks. Thanks to our ecosystem-based approach, we can provide access to quality seafood around the world, and the seas are healthier as a result. Together with other food producers, we believe that Norwegian seafood can contribute to food security through providing a high-quality and sustainable source of protein and that we will leave no one behind.”   A recent report by United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization revealed that in 2021, 2.3 billion people, nearly 30 percent of the global population, experienced food insecurity and between 702 and 828 million people were affected by hunger. It is estimated that nearly 670 million people will still be undernourished by 2030. The impacts of the pandemic have caused stress on food production and trade channels. This has resulted in soaring food prices and growing inequalities in access to food. The APEC Food Security Roadmap Towards 2030 ensures that people have access to sufficient, safe, affordable and nutritious food to meet their needs.   About The Norwegian Seafood Council The Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) is a public company owned by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries. NSC works together with the Norwegian fisheries and aquaculture industry to develop markets for Norwegian seafood, representing the country’s seafood exporters and the seafood industry. The trademark “Seafood from Norway” is a symbol of origin for Norwegian seafood caught or raised in the cold clear waters of Norway. More

  • “Informa Markets ” is confident in the potential success of “ProPak Asia 2023”

    Informa Markets Thailand gears forward to host ProPak Asia 2023 on June 14-17, 2023, at BITEC, Bangna, reaffirming its readiness to welcome over 40,000 entrepreneurs. The event this time has been revamped with 8 zones to be exhibited and celebrate the 30th anniversary, spotlighting the status of upstream soft power in part of food to introduce Thai food to the global arena through innovative processing and packaging technology while driving business on the basis of the BCG Model for sustainability.   Ms. Rungphech Chitanuwat, Regional Portfolio Director - ASEAN, Informa Markets Thailand, the organizer of ProPak Asia 2023, said: “Marking the 30th anniversary this year, ProPak has experienced challenges and triggers for improvements before it achieves this milestone. At ProPak, we aim beyond an exhibition platform, thus being a connector that connects upstream business (processing, packaging) to the downstream business (entrepreneurs). What’s special this year is that we noticed changes in markets as cutting-edge technology emerged. This emergence indeed is a way to add value to products of M-SMEs and farmers who could improve their packaging and strengthen competitiveness of their creation. With this success, it contributes to steering the community to feed products to the industrial market. This year, we have collaborated with the Food Innovation and Packaging Center, Chiang Mai University, in a pilot project to acquire and introduce community products to the global arena. Not only that, L-SMEs will also experience Tech Solutions that will fulfill their business needs. The event is hence truly a one-stop place to visit.”   Ms. Rungphech added that: “At this year's event, we are focusing on the theme of 4S (Supply Chain, Safety, Security, and Sustainability) in driving the economy of food industry, both directly and indirectly, through our 8 unmissable zones, including Processing Tech Asia, Packaging Tech Asia, Drink Tech Asia, Pharma Tech Asia, Lab&Test Asia, Packaging Solution Asia, Coding, Marking & Labeling Asia, and Coldchain, Logistics, Warehousing & Factory Asia. Highlights of this year are: ·      Investment Clinic: As a collaboration with the BOI, entrepreneurs, SMEs, startups can seize an opportunity to consult with financial experts about their investment, business planning, business scale-up and development. ·      Post-Harvest Tech Zone: In collaboration with the Food Innovation and Packaging Center, Chiang Mai University, this zone is to showcase techniques for agricultural product storage and manufacturing process, e.g., storing, packaging, distributing. ·      Lab & Test Theater: In collaboration with INNOLAB, it encourages everyone to visit technological labs dedicated for food, beverages, medicines and personal care development.   As for the public sector, the event is honored by Dr.Pattra Maneesin, Deputy Governor Industrial Services, Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research (TISTR), who said: “The Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research (TISTR) has been an active partner with ProPak Asia. This year, the Institute is presenting research, scientific, technological and innovative services in the TISTR Total Solutions theme, comprehensively empowering entrepreneurs through science, technology, and innovation so that they can take bold steps in the industry, work against international standards, and be competitive in both domestic and international markets. Besides, it will showcase end-to-end research and service findings, covering agriculture, food, health and medicine, packaging while research and developments for recycling are also a focus. The TISTR provides Packaging Testing Services, e.g., for packaging materials (paper, plastic, metal); Biodegradable Material Test for transport packaging, retail packaging, dangerous goods packaging; Performance Test; as well as packaging design and development, e.g., labels and packages.   A representing entrepreneur to attend ProPak Asia 2023, Dr.Ongart Kittikhunchai Chief Executive Officer, Sunsweet Public Company Limited, mentioned future food trends during the press conference in an interesting way. “Food of the future will be subjected to significant changes. Considering the environment and the increasing number of populations, food must be supplied sufficiently, not only in terms of amount, but also its nutritious contents. This thus can be a key turning point. Apart from that, food security is essential in all food businesses, regardless of locations. If we cannot catch up with the trend, we can be disrupted in the future. With respect to this, Sunsweet has engaged in product research and development (R&D), seeking new opportunities by leveraging knowledge, technology and transformation approaches. It has aligned innovative food products with consumer needs. Product demands in the global market become more intense after security events set in, which can actually be regarded as a market opportunity for exportation. On the part of the company itself, it achieved a 30% growth. Products that offer a longer shelf life in form of cans obtained a greater demand.   Ms.Kanoknaphat Pachreang, General Manager, Strategy and Business Development, Kasetphand Industry Co., Ltd., mentioned adoption of the BCG model in boosting 3 business dimensions. “The BCG model is not something new, as it is a principle further developed from a strong foundation rooted in Thailand, integrated and extended to the chain of goods and service production, especially in 4 s-curve industries. From an entrepreneur's perspective, this is about self-reliance and it is forming the basis of sustainable development, as it harnesses the strengths of our country, including biodiversity and cultural diversity. The two are combined with knowledge and innovation to enhance products even better. The first return as a result of this is greater competitiveness, especially when it comes to innovation. Innovation brings changes as competition becomes intense and potential increases, and that means our income and environmental consciousness will be positively influenced. This is in line with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Policies and Goals. If we can achieve this, we shall be able to pave the way for the country to the leading position in the 4 s-curve industries. Regardless of external factors, changes in climate, energy or food shortage, if the BCG model can be applied effectively, I believe all problems can be addressed.   Mr.Karan Tejasen, Chairman of the Board of VexCel Pack Co., Ltd., and Chief Operating Officer, SCG Packaging Public Company Limited, discussed the trend of packaging business. “Changes in demographics and lifestyles are conducive to the increasing use of packaging while packaging tends to be more functional and enhances convenience for users. As consumers are turning to greener alternatives, the choice becomes a factor that plays a key role in fueling growth of paper and alternative packaging solutions, e.g., packaging designed to use fewer materials, reusable and effortlessly recyclable, green and resource efficient. Moreover, the rising trend of e-commerce and omnichannel retail models are major growth factors of the packaging market in the region.   Correspondingly, Mr.Theeraphon Nimitvanich, Chief Operating Officer, Eka Global Company Limited, commented: “Packaging contributes to a considerable influence on consumers, consumption behavior, purchase decisions, as, for example, it attracts consumers, being attractive and appealing while also engaging. Packaging can strengthen bonds between consumers and the product. Moreover, it can carry product information and benefits; for instance, properties and usage. It adds brand values, protects the content within and enhances durability – a way to confirm that a specific product remains intact and in a condition expected.   The 30th trade and innovation exhibition for manufacturing, processing, and packaging industries ProPak Asia 2023 will be held between June 14 – 17, 2023, at BITEC Exhibition and Convention Center, with pre-registration available at More
