Thailand-based seafood supply giant Siam Canadian is launching an export drive to Brazil for hake and pangasius among other seafood products.

"We are actively trying to grow our presence in the Brazil market, which has huge potential," Siam Canadian Managing Director Jim Gulkin told IntraFish.

The company recently met with potential new clients at the Seafood Latin America trade fair in Sao Paulo, Brazil, as part of efforts to penetrate further into retail and foodservice markets.
