BMTI takes part in the UNFAO event | Small in scale, big in value – Celebrating Small-Scale Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Mediterranean

On September 10 2022 BMTI will take part in the event Celebrating Small-Scale Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Mediterranean, organised by UNFAO for the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (IYAFA 2022) as an occasion to discuss such topics, in particular with regard to the Mediterranean area. Within this context it will be presented the Fishery Wholesale Price App – a digital and innovative tool for business operators developed and managed by BMTI, which is granting an easy and real time access to the prices of the fishery wholesale distribution markets in Italy.

BMTI has an experience in different Projects, carried out through the years under appointment of the Italian Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies in the framework of the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF), and likewise in the promotion of other initiatives, to disseminate at the national level fishery product prices, that enhance market transparency – some of which are realised also with the contribution of the Italian Network of Wholesale Food and Fish Markets (Italmercati).

Such commitment to support the fishery sector will continue also in the next years, with the objective to strengthen what has been done already and extend its scope, in line with EU programmes. In this website it is possible to look closer at Our Italian Experience and find out about the Services and Tools made available, both at national and international level, to institutions and business support organisations (BSOs).
