Sri Lanka to supply 5.6 metric tonnes of Vannamei prawns to Jordanian seafood chains

The Sri Lanka Embassy in Jordan has reportedly been engaged on a drive to promote high value aquaculture commodities from Sri Lanka into Jordan under its economic diplomacy initiative.
The promotional drive has reportedly been successful in obtaining an order of 5.6 metric tonnes for Sri Lankan Vannamei prawns from one of the largest Jordanian seafood chains.
The 5.6 metric tonnes of Vannamei prawns, sea freighted to Jordan by HTCey Aquaculture Ltd., according to local media reports. It is also the first time Sri Lankan Vannamei prawns of such a quantity is entering the Jordan market subsequent to discussions held by Sri Lanka’s Ambassador Shanika Dissanayake with the Jordanian management to introduce Sri Lankan seafood products. The Vannamei prawns marketed in Jordan at present are of Vietnamese origin.
The Sri Lankan Embassy has been vigorously networking to further advance trade and business opportunities for Sri Lankan seafood companies to garner larger export volumes of the demand for quality seafood in Jordan, local media reports have added.

OSL take:

Sri Lankan authorities are engaged in promoting seafood exports among foreign countries. Sri Lanka harvests many seafod delicacies including a variety of exotic prawns for the export market. The latest market in Jordan for prawns harvested in Sri Lanka is indicative of the growing seafood exports sector in Sri Lanka. This has expanded many business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s seafood production and export sectors.
