Globalisation in the Fish Processing Sector
Source: SourceOECD Agriculture & Food, Volume 2010, Number 5, April 2010 , pp. 47-60(14)
Abstract:Major fish processing companies are pursuing two parallel strategies. In order to secure access to raw material fish processing companies integrate backwards into harvesting and aquaculture (through acquisitions, establishment of subsidiaries or building strategic alliances). Processors also integrate forwards in the value chain through sales and branding in order to establish bargaining power in light of increasing concentration in the retail sector. Restrictions on market access (through tariffs for developed countries and sanitary/hygiene issue in particular for developing countries) and investment climates that encourage foreign direct investment are areas where policy gaps still remain.
