Nova Scotia Seafood Accelerator Program

Perennia’s Seafood Accelerator Program provides advice, resources and funding to help Nova Scotia-based seafood businesses move to the next level. The two main program components are Market Access – Quality and Food Safety and Product Development.

The focus of this program is to:

  • Help eligible companies gain access to new markets or maintain current ones by obtaining necessary food safety certifications and licenses
  • Make improvements to existing seafood products by providing technical support and applied research capabilities for all stages of seafood production
  • Support the development of new Nova Scotia seafood products, from idea to commercialization
