Lagoon Seafood has completed construction of its $10 million production and packaging facility in Granby, Que.
The fresh and frozen seafood company first announced the expansion to the centre in May 2021.
Spanning 63,000 square feet, the facility has increased Lagoon Seafood’s storage capacity and centralized its logistics and storage process.
It houses a freezer capable of accommodating more than 2,500 pallets of frozen products, includes new production rooms to support the company's product innovation ventures and expand its capacity, and accommodates a new spiral freezer.
The facility will primarily supply Blue Tide brand and private label products.
"The completion of this project propels us forward in ways we could only dream of a few years ago," said Michael Cheaib, business resource manager at Lagoon Seafood, in a statement. "Our expanded Granby facility is at the core of our company's expansion into Ontario, Western Canada, and the United States to meet our new levels of customer demand. The renovated and expanded facility will support our commitment to bring new product lines across our market to respond to our customers' needs most effectively."
As part of the expansion, Lagoon has increased its employees in the production department by 100%.
