A Canadian industry leader

Located in L’Anse-au-Griffon (Gaspé Peninsula, Québec), La Crevette du Nord Atlantique inc. specialises in processing northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis). Our main product, distributed under the Caravelle brand, is cooked and peeled northern shrimp, available fresh, frozen or in brine. With our new packaging plant in Rivière-au-Renard, we can offer you the shrimp you’re looking for, in the format of your choice, year round.

Reputed for their exceptional quality and competitive prices, our products are distributed on the Canadian market and abroad. In Canada, our northern shrimp is prized from coast to coast. Elsewhere in the world, our products are enjoyed in the United States, Switzerland, Belgium, and the United Kingdom as well as in Scandinavian countries. Supported by its 150 employees, La Crevette du Nord Atlantique processes nearly 13 million pounds of raw material every year.

Remarkable growth

Incorporated under a Québec charter with several shareholders on December 16, 1980, today, the company is held by trusts owned by the Lapierre and Denis families, who are united by family ties. The founders’ sons, who hold management positions, continue to expand the enterprise to new markets, backed by the unmatched quality of their products.

La Crevette du Nord Atlantique has grown considerably over the years. Since its foundation, production volume has increased fourteen fold while the workforce has quadrupled.

This remarkable growth is the outcome of a series of major investments in the latest equipment.
