Clearwater Seafoods has been named Nova Scotia’s Exporter of the Year. The award came on Friday at the ninth annual Export Achievement Awards, hosted by Nova Scotia Business at the World Trade and Convention Center in Halifax.
With exports valued at more than CAD 275 million, Clearwater ships seafood to more than 40 countries and has 1,500-plus employees.
“It’s not just that 85 percent of our business is done outside of Canada, it’s that we’ve nurtured strong relationships with our international customers all over the world,” said Ian Smith, CEO of Clearwater. “The secret of our success is our people. We may be a small company by international standards, but our people are world-class.”
