Opticrep - SLP SAS

The Opticrep project led by SLP SAS (Slipper Limpet Processing SAS, a company set up in Cancale in August 2008) received Valorial accreditation on 29th May 2008. It aims to maximise a limpet production process with a view to developing products for human consumption. The boats that gather the shellfish in Cancale and Le Vivier Sur Mer (Ille-et-Vilaine) are partners in the project.
The project hopes to turn limpets into new foodstuffs for human consumption, using the flesh of the shellfish. A pilot production plant will be capable of processing 10 tonnes of gross product per day, giving one tonne of end product.
The plant will also be able to conduct research to optimise the industrial process and maximise the possible commercial markets by enhancing the organoleptic and nutritional qualities of the limpet.
Saint-Malo Agglomération is adding a grant of 49,963 € for this project.
