This year marked Tropical's 17th year of exhibiting at the International boston Seafood Show (IBSS), where once again, we caught the attention of key buyers and other industry players from around the world.

At this year's event, we showcased the two newest additions to our product line: fresh and frozen Blue Foot White Shrimp from Ecuador and fresh pasteurized Brown Irish Crabmeat.

Blue Foot White Shrimp was spotted at the show for its unique succulent flavor and crisp texture, known to Tropical's Ecuadorian shrimp. Our latest product inclusion, Irish Crabmeat, reeled in attendees looking for an all-natural, mouthwatering bite, exclusive to our Irish Crabmeat.

Throughout the three exhibit days, attendees took a moment to look at our displays located in key areas of the convention center. At registration, we welcomed attendees with our column wraps carrying imagery for each of the products being prepared at our booth. At the booth, we communicated our commitment to sustainable, high quality seafood through a "Storyboard", showing the tilapia farming process "in a new and unique way for the type of venue", commented Sue Kogan of Seafood Business. The graphics portrayed Tropical's tilapia cycle: from raw materials (soy) used for tilapia feed obtained from the U.S. market, to the end product (tilapia) farmed in Ecuador and transported back here for U.S. consumption.

The rest of our displays took attendees for a travel back in time to the 1930's fish market scene, with the presence of a 1930's Ford Model A Huckster showcasing our fresh product line at our booth. At the North entrance to the convention center, a miniature replica gave a preview of the indoor display through graphics printed with eco-friendly dyes applied to our Smart Car.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and visited us during the show! For more information on our new products, call (802) 747-6311 or visit us at www.eattilapia.com. More pictures from the show can be seen on Facebook!
