Bulgarian seafood producers approach Asian markets

Bulgarian seafood producer White Shells Ltd made a very good first impression at Seafood Expo Asia 2018, in Hong Kong, where it presented two of its products: Large whelks (Rapana venosa) and pasteurized white-shell clams called Tellina (Donax trunculus).
The company has its own production site in Chernomorets and a new processing facility open earlier this year, informs Seafood Source magazine. The processing unit is having a full capacity of 15,000 kilograms per day.
"We supply mainly the European market with the clams. Now we are trying to develop the Asian market. Mainly looking for Korea, Japan, and China to import our whelk meat," said Nina Vasilieva, commercial director of White Shells.
he small white clams, with a bright purple interior, are pasteurized and frozen and shipped inside vacuum packs of various sizes. The whelks, which come from the southern Black Sea, are large in size and shipped frozen in 10-kilogram plastic bags.
The company's products have already caught the attention of some high-end restaurants thanks to the possibility of fresh exports. "For them, it’s a little bit new, but we have two inquiries for Michelin-star restaurants, which are very interested. We insist on our quality, first of all. Every product we have is with perfect quality, it is purified, cleaned from sand, cleaned from other particles, and tested in a credited laboratory", added Vasilieva.
