The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened consumers’ interest in robust health and strong immune systems and highlighted seafood’s important role in diets. Consequently, demand for seafood exceeds the food industry’s ability to meet consumers’ needs. Georgia’s seafood players, along with local commerce and economic leaders, can capitalize on this situation by consulting food technology experts to better utilize this coastal resource now and in the future.
At this networking event designed for seafood professional, economic and 313tourism leaders, and food scientists, participants will have the opportunity to:
- Learn how UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant has partnered with food science and technology experts from the University of Georgia to diversify and expand use of our state’s seafood resources beyond traditional marketing avenues.
- Taste samples of products already developed and take part in brainstorming/envisioning the future of seafood in Georgia.
- Talk with experts in food innovation who can help convert your seafood ideas into future reality.
