We, at Royal Star Foods Ltd., are committed to buying only sustainable and legally caught shellfish and fin fish to help ensure and create a better future for the fishers, their families and their community.
Royal Star Foods Ltd. (RSF), is committed to minimizing our environmental impact on our air and oceans that sustain our way of life. RSF presently uses 37% renewable wind energy in its processing. Our plants have installed ultra violet and filter systems to reduce our water consumption. We use biodegradable cleaners in the sanitation of our plants, and recyclable packaging. Shells and fish carcass are given to local farmers for 100% natural fertilizer.
The fishers that fish for RSF have entered into a program of replacing the motors that power their vessels with new, tier 4 rated, environmentally friendly propulsion motors. Also, PEI fishermen use biodegradable cleaners in the fishing vessels to ensure our oceans remain healthy.
Community to Community
Tignish Fisheries Co-operative Association was established in 1924. We are a seafood processing plant that is owned by the 184 fishers that sell their catch to be processed by its subsidiary, Royal Star Foods Ltd. In doing so, all the product that is realized goes back to the fishers and employees. This is also a work place for some 358 people in the rural community of Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Royal Star Foods is very proud to have given scholarships to 18 summer students that worked for Royal Star Foods in 2017 to help further their education.
