Chilean salmon producers are planning to restart shipments to China in the next two months backed by a marketing campaign aimed at restoring consumer confidence after consignments were halted a month ago.

Shipments came to an abrupt stop in June because of a lack of demand following the discovery of COVID-19 on a chopping board used to cut salmon in a wholesale seafood market.

"We are not sending salmon to China at the moment," Arturo Clement, president of salmon producers trade body SalmonChile told IntraFish.
