Through the 70's, 80's, and 90's, L.J. Robicheau & Son Fisheries Ltd. grew and expanded sales here in Nova Scotia and the United States through the Boston markets.
He said the existing plant at Little River, that employs up to 50 people at any given time, will continue operations as usual.
2011 brought further expansion with the purchase of a larger production plant in Little River, Digby County, Nova Scotia. The plant was procurred by Llewllyn Robicheau, grandson of "old Lew". The family continues to apply the standards of quality to their products that were established in the 1960's by the company founder.
L.J. Robicheau and Son Fisheries Limited, with a plant in Little River, Digby County, recently purchased the former Kings Processing plant on Freeman Street, Middleton to expand their current operation.
“The Town of Middleton is quite pleased to welcome Robicheau Fisheries to town,” said Middleton’s CAO Rachel Turner. “They already have a stellar reputation in this region and this can only serve as a positive signal within our business park and to the community in general that we’re open for business.”
“The new plant operation will promote our focus to export to international markets (such as) China, Europe, Japan as well as expanding domestic markets,” said the company’s human resources officer Pete Berringer.
