“Sharing experiences - accompanying successfully” is what Nam Ha Noi cold storage wants to send to businesses and people dealing in frozen seafood. With more than 20 years in the industry, we would like to share with you more unique frozen food business secrets and companion with your business success. Let's start learning these frozen seafood business experiences right in the following article!


Introduction

Did you know that it takes businesses more than 18 months to launch a new product while consumer trends can change in just a few days?

Just as no one knows in advance that the Covid-19 pandemic will break out in the early 2020, leading to an accelerated trend of frozen food consumption and an increasing demand for frozen seafood.

A simple example for you to easily imagine: In the past, many people had the habit of going to the market/supermarket/store early every day to buy qualitative food, especially fresh seafood.

Vietnamese people preferred fresh foods in the past

But when the Covid-19 pandemic broke out, everyone had to limit travel and crowded contact. People need products that can be preserved longer and fresh seafood is no longer the suitable choice. Frozen seafood becomes a more appropriate solution for storage, preservation and convenience for many people.
 

Changes in consumer trends also lead to changes from food businesses 

Many individuals/businesses dealing in fresh products are changing their product methods to better suit the current market. Frozen food distribution enterprises in general and frozen seafood in particular have been transformed and risen after many difficult days in searching for consumption markets.

It can be seen that all the advantages are leaning towards the frozen food businesses. However, in order to develop in the most favorable direction, businesses need to understand the following seafood business experiences to optimize profits.

 
Effective frozen seafood business experience that you need to know!

If taking a closer look at the current food market and consumer trend reports, businesses can also realize that frozen seafood is still a consumption trend in the near future even without the recent Covid-19 outbreak. The pandemic will only accelerate this trend!

It is no coincidence that many individuals/businesses choose frozen seafood for trading. Because when distributing this product, businesses will receive many benefits that only frozen seafood has such as:

 

What are the practical benefits of frozen seafood?

The products are stored for a long time without using preservatives.

Ensure food safety issues.

Distribute out of season seafood products all year round → larger profits.

Avoid unnecessary waste such as fresh food (not rancid, spoiled or degraded).

Always ensure a stable supply if the business has a large frozen storage.

So what is the way that businesses can take full advantage of the above benefits when trading frozen seafood?

 
Identify consumer tastes
 

 

Is the business researching consumer tastes?

Previously, the company's customers were mainly restaurant owners/households in urban communities, office workers with busy lifestyles, etc. They are willing to buy products with large quantities to store and save costs. However, since the outbreak of the pandemic, the tastes of many other potential customers are also gradually changing. People in rural areas, small and medium-sized restaurants, etc. are also gradually switching from buying frozen seafood instead of buying fresh food.
The way B2C customers shop is also changing. Instead of going directly to supermarkets, grocery stores, etc., consumers now switch to placing orders in bulk on the Internet.

B2B customers are also searching for products and supplier information on e-commerce websites more than before. As long as the price is reasonable, the quality of the seafood (trial product) is stable, many B2B customers can even ignore the geographical distance to find the supplier that can bring them the greatest benefit.

 

Trend of shopping via the phone

Frozen seafood businesses that can capture the tastes of consumers will easily compete and bring more profits to themselves.


Finding a source of qualitative goods

One of the factors that contribute to the success of a seafood business is product quality. The long-term seafood business experience of many large enterprises in the industry has shown that the fresher the original source of seafood before being frozen, the better the quality of the product after defrosting.

Finding fresh and qualitative sources of seafood

Therefore, finding a good source of goods will help businesses improve the product quality, thereby using it as a strength to compete in the industry. Seafood is currently imported mainly from two main sources:
Source of domestic seafood (fished by fishermen, farmed by farmers).
Source of imported seafood from abroad (countries with large seafood barns such as China, USA, Japan, India, etc.).

In terms of nutrition and quality, domestic seafood, especially caught fish, will be much fresher than farmed and imported seafood.

 

Seafood fished on the sea in the country is always fresh

However, because the fishing output in Vietnam is not much, businesses often choose imported types to meet enough sources of goods to supply to consumers. Some countries have sources of qualitative imported seafood, which are classified according to the following categories:

Shrimp: China, Thailand, Ecuador, Mexico, Philippines.

Atlantic salmon: Canada, Norway, Chile.

Tilapia: China, Indonesia, Ecuador, Honduras.

Scallops: China, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Argentina, Philippines.

Oysters: China, Korea, Canada.

Tuna: Mexico, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Ecuador.


Choose a place to store frozen seafood

After enterprises found a source of qualitative goods, imported seafood will be processed, frozen, refrigerated and packaged. The finished products after being refrigerated should be brought to a suitable preservation place for storage before being sent to new stores/branches for sale.

So, how to choose the optimal place to store frozen seafood? This is the key issue that should be concerned by many frozen seafood traders.

There are currently 3 solutions to preserve frozen seafood on the market.

Cold rooms & Freezers: A place to store and display frozen seafood at stores and branches.

Mini cold storages: Self-constructed and installed by enterprises to store products.

Rented industrial cold storages: Is a separate storage service, where the centralized storage of many different companies.
