Virtual sales pitch to NYC market will include a taste test of East Coast oysters
Nova Scotia Aquaculture Association organizing on-line café in February
When you're making a sales pitch, and your products are food, having samples to taste is important.
In the word of COVID-19, as trade shows and meetings move online, that's a challenge, but not an impossibility.
Over the next few couple of weeks crates of oysters from Atlantic Canadian growers will be arriving in New York City, one of the logistical steps organizing a Feb. 3 virtual café to connect growers and potential buyers.
About a dozen growers from Atlantic Canada are participating in the event, said Tom Smith, executive director for the Aquaculture Association of Nova Scotia — www.seafarmers.ca — which is organizing the event.
