Oceanus Group

Seafood supply chain manager Oceanus has entered into a memorandum of agreement with WSRC Holding that will greatly expand its abalone and seafood business in China.

Oceanus said in a statement yesterday that the move would boost distribution of its seafood products, in particular.

As part of the deal, WSRC has agreed to buy 250 cartons of Oceanus' canned abalones or a sales equivalent of $250,000, whichever is higher. WSRC also agreed that it would buy at least 500 cartons or the sales equivalent of $500,000, whichever is higher, from Oceanus before June 13 next year.

WSRC will also set up a retail outlet in Chengdu to sell Oceanus products by this year. The two companies intend to jointly develop a first-of-its-kind seafood market concept, targeting the Chinese consumer market.
