Our combined vision is to bring our Chinese customer base closer to the raw material market in Argentina. Buena Proa’s local expertise, knowledge and experience allows Oceanic to confidently offer seafood to the China domestic market, knowing that price quality and forward contracts can all be achieved.

By combining Oceanic Seafoods established sales in China with raw material buying from Argentina through Buena Proa, our partnership gives us a competitive edge over other suppliers.
