There was an air of excitement this year at Seafood Expo North America, which returned to the historic city after being postponed by the pandemic for two years. The show took place from March 13-15 at the Boston Convention Center. Tradewind Finance was on hand at the event to provide information about its trade finance services, which are a crucial component of the industry’s financial infrastructure.
Maine-based Diversified Communications organized the event, which featured pop-up counters from seafood companies around the world, who provided samples of their delicacies to potential buyers and other attendees.
Unlike other traditional lenders, Tradewind is willing to work with companies in the seafood sector despite the perishable nature of the products. Among the companies it has provided tailored financial assistance to are American, Icelandic, Turkish, and Maldivian firms dealing in fresh and frozen fish. Tradewind has extensive experience in the seafood sector, which means it fully understands the unique challenges seafood businesses face and provides financing solutions designed to increase cash flow and provide access to credit protection.
Furthermore, Tradewind’s international network in the seafood industry offers clients access to local experts when entering new markets.
“After two years of cancellations, the seafood industry finally reconnected in Boston. As a first timer at the show, I was thrilled having so many good conversations and meetings with existing clients from all over the world. The endless samples were pretty good, too. I look forward to seeing what the year brings,” said René Pastor, CEO of Tradewind Americas.
“Tradewind is pleased to be a part of such a successful conference and looks forward to forming new partnerships with the players that will drive the seafood industry forward,” said Catherine Alvino, Marketing Manager in Tradewind’s New York office.
