NEWPORT NEWS—High Liner Foods Incorporated, a leading North American frozen seafood company, will continue to invest in modernizing its facility in Newport News with new equipment and product lines. It is committed to a substantial reinvestment in its Oakland Industrial Park operations, and Governor Youngkin has approved a $300,000 grant from the Virginia Investment Performance Grant, a performance-based incentive that encourages continued capital investment by existing Virginia companies.

“Continued investments in our Newport News facility in Virginia will help us advance High Liner Foods’ growth strategy to become the North American leader in branded, value-added seafood,” said Rod Hepponstall, president and CEO of High Liner Foods. “Virginia offers our business many benefits and opportunities based on its strategic location as a supply chain hub, access to a skilled workforce, and potential for future growth.”

Founded more than 120 years ago in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, High Liner Foods’ retail branded products are sold throughout the United States and Canada under the High Liner, Fisher Boy, Mirabel, Sea Cuisine, and Catch of the Day labels, and are available in most grocery and club stores. The company also sells branded products to restaurants and institutions under the High Liner, Mirabel, Icelandic Seafood, and FPI labels, and is a major supplier of private label seafood products in North America food retailers and foodservice distributors. High Liner Foods is a publicly traded Canadian company, trading under the symbol HLF on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

“High Liner Foods has made an excellent choice to continue in our great city,” said McKinley L. Price, mayor of Newport News. “High Liner Foods is an integral part of the business community in Newport News, as well as a significant employer and contributor to the regional economy. We look forward to continuing to help them grow and thrive.”

The Newport News production facility was opened by Icelandic Seafood in 1996. In 2011, High Liner Foods acquired Icelandic’s U.S. and Asian operations, including the Newport News facility. The facility is located at 190 Enterprise Dr.
