Ready Seafood to build largest lobster processing facility in the nation
The 40-acre campus in Saco, Maine, 18 miles south of Portland, will include space for processing.
Ready Seafood Co., Portland, Maine, announced plans to build what is said to be one of the largest lobster processing facilities in the country.
The 40-acre campus in Saco, Maine, 18 miles south of Portland, will include space for processing, as well as tanks to keep live lobsters for shipping. There’s also plans for a solar farm on the property.
“These lobsters are already going across the border to Canada. Why aren’t they being processed here?” says Brendan Ready, co-owner. “Because you need infrastructure.”
Ready Seafood hopes to break ground in June, and get the first phase of the project open by summer 2019.
