This exclusive alliance with the global seafood producer, Newsan Food, will help drive Argentinian seafood exports to The Gulf and beyond.

The new partnership with Newsan Food will not only see Seafood Souq as sole distributor of the Argentina seafood provider’s products in the GCC region, but the food company has also pledged to prioritise Seafood Souq in expanding its reach into other international markets.

It boasts an infrastructure of 40 fishing vessels, 16 processing plants, and three expansive cold storage facilities; with an annual revenue of more than $1bn.

While Seafood Souq provides integrated digital ecosystem allows the seafood industry to ​trace, trade and finance seafood product. Last year it was recognised as a Future 100 company.

Its products include, among other things, Argentinian shrimps, Hake, Patagonian Toothfish, Squid (multiple varieties), Chilean King Crab and Snow Crab, Chilean Swordfish, and Andean Salmon Trout. It is also actively engaged in mussel farming, rainbow trout farming, and other sustainable aquaculture practices.

Diego Glikman, CEO of Newsan Food, described its new partner as a company with great ambition and a solid presence in the Middle East. 

Jimmy Torchut, CBDO of Seafood Souq, added: "We are thrilled to announce our exclusive partnership with Newsan Food, one of the most established fishing fleets and producers in the world. This collaboration marks a significant step in our mission to make trade more traceable and offer direct delivery from Argentina to new markets.
