The NFI Salmon Council Announces New Member

Trapananda Seafarms Joins Salmon Marketing Effort

March 21, 2016 – McLean, VA – The NFI Salmon Council welcomes Trapananda Seafarms as a member. Acting as the North American commercial office of major Chilean salmon producer Australis Seafoods S.A., Trapananda Seafarms markets and sells Atlantic salmon, Pacific salmon and Steelhead trout to American consumers.

Trapananda Seafarms products are distinctive of the Chilean Patagonia region. With a supply chain that handles every stage of the growth process, Trapananda’s salmon is hatched, farmed and processed in a certified, controlled environment. Over an extensive period of time, Trapananda Seafarms has supplied American markets with salmon products that distinguish themselves through purity, freshness, color, texture and taste.

“Trapananda Seafarms’ products are linked with southern Chile,” said Managing Director Rick Cano. “Because salmon is a global product, we are excited to join the council to bring fuller attention to the unique contributions our region makes to world salmon production. In doing so, we also hope to promote the positive qualities and benefits shared by all salmon.”

The Salmon Council welcomes Trapananda Seafarms during a membership campaign joining Agrosuper and Multiexport Foods as new council members.

Salmon Council Chairman Gianfranco Nattero welcomes Trapananda Seafarms as the most recent Chilean company to join the marketing group.

“Trapananda Seafarms is one of several Chilean salmon companies who have recently signed onto the Salmon Council,” said Nattero. “Producing over a quarter of the world’s salmon, Chile is a necessary voice in the effort to raise salmon consumption.”

The Salmon Council was established in January 2013 for the promotion of salmon in the U.S. market. The Salmon Council’s sixteen-company membership represents wild-caught, farmed, domestic and imported products.
