MIAMI (Feb. 25, 2014) – Miami-based Marky’s Group, one of the leading importers and producers of caviar in the United States, announced today that company president and COO, Christopher Hlubb, will be a featured panelist at the Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America conference in Boston March 16-18.
Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America (formerly known as the International Boston Seafood Show) is the largest seafood trade event in North America. The event attracts over 19,000 buyers and suppliers of fresh, frozen, packaged and value-added seafood products, equipment, and services. Attendees travel from more than 100 countries to do business at the exposition.
Hlubb will join a group of experts to discuss Seafood Safety and Compliance with NOAA Fisheries, FDA, and U.S. Customs on March 17 from 3:30-5:00 p.m. Hlubb will discuss Marky’s compliance program, highly regarded as the gold standard in the industry.
“We work hard not only to meet – but exceed – government requirements,” said Hlubb. “There have been a lot of concerns circling the caviar industry with regards to product identification so the role of Marky’s and our farm, Sturgeon AquaFarms, is to provide scientific support to the government to identify genuine species of sturgeon and caviar.”
To this end, Marky’s has adapted the international trade standard as a way to ensure proper labeling and consumer transparency. And at Sturgeon AquaFarms, the only aqua farm in North America to raise beluga, sterlet and sevruga sturgeon, they are committed to the conservation and preservation of sturgeon species.
Seafood Safety and Compliance with NOAA Fisheries, FDA, and U.S. Customs will be moderated by Peter Quinter, Chair of the Customs and International Trade Law Group at the law firm of Gray Robinson. Other panelists include:
Timothy Hansen, Director, Seafood Inspection Program, NOAA Fisheries, Silver Spring, Maryland
Domenic Veneziano, Director, Division of Import Operations, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Rockville, Maryland
William Scopa, Director, Interagency Collaboration Division, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Washington, D.C.
Christopher Hlubb, President and COO, Marky’s Group, Inc., Miami, Florida
Benjamin England, CEO, FDA Imports.com LLC, Glen Burnie, Maryland
