Lagoon Seafood Unveils $10M Facility Expansion

  (CANADA, 11/20/2023)

Lagoon Seafood, a leader in the distribution, import, export, and processing of fresh and frozen seafood, has completed construction of its state-of-the-art facility in Granby, Quebec. This achievement marks a significant milestone in the company’s strategic expansion initiative. Lagoon initially announced the expansion to its 63,000-square-foot facility in May 2021.

"The completion of this project propels us forward in ways we could only dream of a few years ago,” says Michael Cheaib, business resource manager at Lagoon Seafood. “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.”  

The renovated and expanded facility will support the company's commitment to bring new product lines across the market.

The new production and packaging facility mainly supplies Blue Tide branded and private label products. It has also significantly 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, a high-efficiency piece of equipment that shortens the time required to freeze products, maximizing freshness, and providing outstanding taste.

“We are proud of the facility and pleased with the outcome,” adds Cheaib. “But the focus has always been and continues to be our people. We believe in our staff and our partners. We value their tireless work to bring the customer the best selection of fresh and frozen seafood products. This mission requires the latest tools and technologies – to get the product in and out efficiently and consistently.”  

The expansion has significantly increased Lagoon Seafood’s storage capacity and centralized its logistics and storage process.

With its expanded facility, Lagoon has already increased its employees in the production department by 100%. Lagoon Seafood is creating various employment opportunities in the Granby and Montreal area for multiple roles, such as inventory management and control, electrical, mechanical, and maintenance, and growth opportunities in all departments.
