LES ÎLES-DE-LA-MADELEINE — On May 3, Diane Lebouthillier, Member of Parliament for Gaspésie–Les Iles‑de la‑Madeleine and Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, on behalf of Soraya Martinez Ferrada, Minister of Tourism and Minister responsible for CED, announced a repayable contribution of $2 million for Les Fruits de Mer Madeleine inc. This funding from CED will allow the business to acquire various equipment for its snow crab production line, expand its deep‑freeze warehouse and upgrade its current facilities.

Founded in 1991, Les Fruits de Mer Madeleine specializes primarily in the processing of snow crab and other types of seafood, including lobster. This investment will support this manufacturing company’s growth and performance and allow it to increase its daily production capacity in order to be able to process high volumes in short periods of time. The acquisition of the new equipment will also help the business improve its energy efficiency.

“One of our government’s priorities is ensuring the prosperity of communities. SMEs are key to economic growth, which is why CED supports them in their efforts to increase their productivity. Les Fruits de Mer Madeleine contributes significantly to the economic vitality of Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine and its success has an impact on the entire region,” said Diane Lebouthillier, Member of Parliament for Gaspésie–Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard.
