Trade mission for carrageenan and agar to Indonesia

The trade mission which is taking place from 18 – 22 May 2015 includes tailor-made company visits with Indonesian suppliers of agar (E 406), semi-refined (E 407 a) and refined carrageenan (E 407). Importing companies will be able to evaluate production facilities of seaweed processors in Jakarta, Surabaya, Makassar, Lombok and Medan. In addition, the delegation will visit seaweed farms to learn more about the supply chain.
