The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute held an Alaska seafood festival entitled “Baked Delicacy with Guangzhou Greenery Café” from Oct. 26 to Nov. 26, 2006. This was the second time ASMI cooperated with the Guangzhou Greenery Food & Beverage Franchising Co., Ltd. The company is one of the top 100 enterprises in the Chinese food service industry. The current festival covered 50 Greenery Café outlets aiming to supply pure, wild and natural Alaska seafood to many consumers. The festival boasted 10 special dishes to choose from, all of which included high quality Alaska salmon, cod and halibut.
