Les Poudres Marines du St-Laurent was founded in 2013 to fully valorise the shrimp biomass. More than 65 percent of this crustacean is not used for its meat (unused weight includes the head and shell). Our affiliated company, Les Poudres Marines du St-Laurent, is able to make use of this considerable biomass. And the environment-friendly nature of the company’s operations does not end there; valorising this biomass also keeps the equivalent of 100 semi-trailer loads of waste out of the sanitary landfill.
Les Poudres Marines du St-Laurent was the first company in Canada to offer food-grade shrimp shell powder. It produces about 350 tonnes per year.
