  The Man Behind The Business:
  Introducting Kennie MacWilliams, pictured left, owner and
  operator since 1980.
  Kennie attended the University of Prince Edward Island,
  following which his biology interest took him to the
  Department of Fisheries and Oceans. It wasn’t long before
  he saw opportunity in the PEI Oyster.

  The Business Behind The Man:
  Today, Kennie’s relationship with the hands that work the
  water, insure Canadian distributors quality Oysters, clams,
  and other assorted shellfish.
  Kennie is unique amongst the Island repackers, selling over
  95% of his product to the Canadian market. Kennie keeps
  the shellfishers on PEI aligned with Canadian interests!
  Kennie brings to the market a capacity for satisfying the full
  range of demand for oysters, providing large quantities for
  wholesale groups or truly exceptional Oysters for epicurean
  Kennie's operation is seasonal and the lights go dark in
  January or February. As spring breaks, Fort Augustus
  springs into full action. His brand, the “Hillsborough”
  (Malpeques), are a well known favorite.
