Quality and Food Safety Programs

Nova Scotia Seafood Accelerator Program

Perennia is pleased to introduce its first Seafood Accelerator Program for Nova Scotia’s seafood sector.

The focus of this program is to support:

  • access to new markets through support for eligible companies obtaining a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification to open new export markets or maintain current ones,
  • improvement of current seafood value-added products (either in market or a ready-to-commercialize prototype with a waiting market) through technical support, and
  • successful commercialization of new Nova Scotia value-added seafood products into recognized markets with sales longevity

This program is funded under the provincial Building for Tomorrow Fund and is available until March 31, 2021. Intake is ongoing while funds are available. Projects must be completed by March 31 in the year they are approved, so early application is recommended.
