Wo Hing’s first order is for more than 50 tonnes of harvested greenlip abalone, estimated to be valued at about US$1.95 million.
A monthly delivery schedule has been agreed between OGA and Wo Hing up to the end of December 2019.
OGA has developed the world's first commercial greenlip abalone sea ranching business in the pristine waters of Flinders Bay, Western Australia.
Through the construction of proprietary, purpose-built artificial abalone reefs (Abitats) OGA is able to supply commercial quantities of its wild-harvested greenlip abalones at sizes not otherwise available in the market today.
The demand for OGA’s abalones is increasing across the globe, particularly in Asia.
The new order provides Wo Hing with a secured forward supply of greenlip abalones at predetermined prices for specified size grades.
This large order reflects the importance of buyers securing supply sources to meet the increasing global demand for premium seafood.
