Cité Marine invests €32 million to create a production site in Hauts-de-France.

Cité Marine: a French leader in Hauts-de-France

In 30 years, Cité Marine has grown to be the French leader in fish and processed vegetables, and more recently in the vegetarian food.

The company owns 7 production sites in the Grand Ouest region and is now planning a brand new production site in Saint-Quentin in the Hauts-de-France region.

The €32 million investment will enable the construction of a 12,000m2 production unit kitted out with the latest cutting-edge technology and employing 200 people. The project provides for an additional €15 investment by 2025 increasing the workforce to 300.

Hauts-de-France: a strategic choice for business

Three key factors drove the choice:

“This new site complements our existing locations and will allow the company to pursue its growth strategy in France and internationally” Eric Le Hénaff, Chairman and CEO, Cité Marine

The Saint-Quentin Communauté d’Agglomération, the Region and the French government threw their support behind the project to ensure its success.
