Government Provides Support for Shrimp Processing Efficiency



The Minister of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation Bernard Davis announced $126,475 through the Innovation and Business Investment Corporation to Martak Canada, in support of its latest shrimp peeling technology, the Pro Peeler.


The company is also receiving advisory services and up to $168,796 in research and development funding through the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) towards the project.


The Pro Peeler is an innovative product that will improve Martak Canada’s current shrimp peeler machine, making it more efficient and capable of producing higher product yields. This next generation product will combine automation, quality control and real-time monitoring with an advanced machine vision system. This support brings the Pro Peeler another step closer to commercialization.
