It is not a secret that the Japanese people loved to eat fish. Some of the products that they enjoy eating are fish products from Bantaeng district, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Although Japan has just hit by the tsunami, but the demand for processed fish products of PT. Global Seafood International Indonesia remains high.

Last week, PT. Global Seafood International Indonesia exported 20 tons of surimi and fish fillets. Previously, the company has already sent 13 containers of the same products. Surimi made from kurisi fish, sardines, and flying fish is the main raw material of kamaboko, fish nuggets and fish ball in Japan.

Afandy, production manager at the company say that they began to develop other products in addition to surimi, such as frozen pelagic fish and frozen octopus. In addition, they also will process frozen tuna exclusively for the domestic market.

The company employs more than 100 indigenous people Bantaeng. Good news isn’t it? Expanding job fileds for the local people while improving the country's foreign exchange through exporting processed fish products.
