Town of Burin working with developer on former fish plant
An effort is underway to breathe new life into the former High Liner Foods fish plant in Burin.
According to a post on the Town of Burin’s Facebook page Wednesday, council is presently working with a developer and the provincial government to make the plant operational again.
The High Liner facility closed in December 2013 and was acquired by the town in October 2015 after the company was unable to sell the plant privately.
“Since obtaining ownership, we have met with various developers in the past to discuss possible processes to get the plant operating,” the post stated.
“The Town of Burin continues to work with the intention of creating employment at the plant.”
More information will be released in the future should the endeavour be successful, the post noted.
The Town of Burin acquired the former fish plant belonging to High Liner Foods from the company in 2015.
