trū® Shrimp brings shrimp to Minnesota

trū® Shrimp Project – Balaton Bay Reef

Balaton, MN
General Contractor:
Miron Construction
The trū® Shrimp Company

Balaton, Minn.  Last fall, The trū® Shrimp Company broke ground on Balaton Bay Reef, an employee training center and the largest shrimp production facility in the Midwest.  The primary purpose of Balaton Bay Reef is to train employees for careers raising shrimp at trū Shrimp facilities.  Construction has become a bit more noticeable in the small town of Balaton, Minnesota, as the enclosed building now stands 40’-feet in height.  Wells Concrete recently completed the project, which consisted of 118 pieces of precast concrete.  This includes over 37,000 square feet of precast members.

The construction of Balaton Bay Reef brings trū Shrimp one step closer to its mission of sustaining a growing population with healthy, clean shrimp.  Trū Shrimp facilities raise the safest, most natural shrimp possible through an environmentally responsible approach with a goal to offer consumers a consistent, reliable and predictable shrimp supply.  Trū Shrimp aims to start selling commercial shrimp in 2019.

Trū Shrimp is an affiliate of Ralco, a third-generation family-owned multinational company with distribution in more than 20 counties.  To learn more about trū Shrimp, please visit
