– Farming, Food Processing & Distribution Projects
1. Fish Processing,
Cold Storage & Distribution Project:
The project estimated to cost about $6.57 million through $9.60 million, will be capable of processing 10-12 tons per 12 hour day of Fresh Fish (Tilapia, Grouper & Catfish), Pink & Grey Shrimps and Crawfish.
The overall goal of the project
is to establish a Pre-Engineered Processing Facility in Coastal Fishing
Communities that will be capable of processing Fresh Fish, Crawfish
and Shrimps purchased from local Fisherman and Fishing Cooperatives
for processing and distribution through a Network of ten (10) Fish Shops
to be located throughout various markets. The project will also incorporate
Smokehouse Equipment capable of producing Smoked Fish & Crawfish
Products for International and Local sales.
The project will not be involved
in fishing or fish trawling but will provide opportunity to Fishermen
that are compelled to smoke dry the day's catch as a means of preservation,
while leftover fresh fish are normally sold in local markets at give
away prices to avoid spoilage. The project will ensure proper care in
cleaning, handling and packaging the fish, thereby eliminating the fish
from spoilage and supply a consistent source of high quality fresh fish
free from contamination.
