The surimi forum is the only seafood industry activity I’ve attended (in person or via teleconference) which actually creates an environment for participants to consider the “greater good” for all involved.

Your Surimi school was excellent. I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity to attend your school, and to share information about our industry. It’s not often in a 3 day class that you actually get the opportunity to perform the lab work that goes along with the Surimi making process. Your staff was excellent, they were a pleasure to work with and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. You have taught them well. It was a pleasure to work with everyone.

found the Forum and School extremely helpful, providing me with a detailed
insight into 'surimi' and look forward to be
attending future Forums.
Food and hotel were very good.
Microwave cooking lab session is too much sales talk.
Smaller lab group is needed.
The microwave session seemed to focus more on selling than accurate comparisons with water bath samples
Since 1997 when last attended the school, many useful topics have been included, such as Pollock surimi production and many other species used. I can bring many things back to my vessel and to my company from attending this session. Thanks Jae and all involved. See you at the Forum next year.
