We deal directly with fishermen to make a second product quality control. The lobster are placed into a “criée box” and cover with a cloth soaked in seawater and transported alive to our water tank. Our refrigerated truck is used to maintain or cool down the lobster to approach the temperature of our tanks to minimize the stress during the intrusion into their new environment. Goods are generally carried out in 10kg polystyrene boxes. Wood fiber soaked into seawater are disposed on top of the live lobster to keep the best humidity levels for shipping. Delanchy or STEF mainly provide transportation of our product in compliance with environmental and social standards.
