Thai Union restructures management at lobster processing plant in Canada
Thai Union Canada has restructured the management of its Tracadie-Sheila, New Brunswick, Canada-based lobster processing plant, effective immediately, the company announced on Tuesday, 13 February.
The terms of the restructuring have Daley Seafoods overseeing the management and operations of Thai Union Canada’s New Brunswick processing facility as well as its operations facility in Bass Harbor, Maine.
“Daley Seafoods will be responsible for all elements, inclusive of but not limited to, procurement, fiscal management, employee administration, and plant operations,” Thai Union Canada said in a press release detailing the restructuring.
François Benoit, the former managing director for Thai Union Canada, will support the company as it transitions to new leadership, and will transfer his remaining ownership of the Canada-based business to Thai Union before stepping down.
“Thai Union Canada wishes him the very best going forward,” the company said of Benoit's pending departure in its news release.
Both the New Brunswick and Maine facilities saw Thai Union Canada become a majority owner in 2016, the former in June, and the latter in December.
