Chilean salmon producers looking to return to Chinese market

Chilean salmon producers are looking to start their comeback into China after Chinese consumers and retailers shunned Chilean salmon products, following the discovery of COVID-19 on the chopping board of a seller of imported salmon at Beijing’s main wholesale seafood market, according to the president of trade group SalmonChile, Arturo Clement. Chilean salmon was never officially banned from China, but was forced to undergo a series of tests at ports. When supermarkets stopped stocking imported salmon and shoppers shunned it, producers took the decision to take a break from the market.
