Champlain Seafood Acquired Captain Dan’s Seafood

  (CANADA, 10/11/2019)

The Champlain Seafood platform (the “Company”), parent company of lobster and crab processors Cheticamp Fisheries, Riverside Lobster International, Boston Lobster, Petit de Grat Packers and Cape Bald Packers, has announced its recent acquisition of Captain Dan’s Seafood (“Captain Dan’s”). The addition of Captain Dan’s further strengthens the Company’s worldwide industry leading position in its sector. Claridge Inc. (“Claridge”) has partnered with Champlain Financial Corporation (“Champlain”) and made a strategic investment in support of this plan to create a world-class seafood processing and marketing platform based in Canada.

Captain Dan’s Seafood sells its products to large retailers, restaurant chains, cruise lines and regional distributors internationally to North America, Asia and Europe.

Captain Dan’s is a New Brunswick-based seafood processor that specializes in transforming lobster and snow crab into premium products for corporate customers in North America, Europe and Asia.

The acquisition of Captain Dan’s will allow the Company to optimize its operational capabilities by diversifying its offering. Moreover, the Company will be able to increase its sales force and develop growing foreign markets while creating new employment opportunities in the Canadian crab and lobster industry and supporting its long-term economic prosperity.

“We’re delighted that Captain Dan’s has joined the Champlain Seafood platform. As a result, we’ll be able to serve our customers better and strengthen our relationships with our suppliers,” says Normand LeBlanc, Owner and President of Captain Dan’s.

“This acquisition is in line with our goal to become the world leader in the $10 billion crab and lobster industry. We’re also pleased to welcome Normand LeBlanc to our executive management team as well as the other Captain Dan’s managers, who together form a team of world-class business operators,” says Marc Poulin, Executive Chairman of the Company.

Fresh daily from Canada’s Atlantic coast, Captain Dan’s Seafood lobster is consistently the best-tasting shellfish in the world and served at some of the most popular restaurant chains in North America.
