Canadian frozen food giant High Liner has been awarded $10 million (€9.5 million) from an insurance company over its ongoing dispute related to the company's purchase of US shrimp supplier Rubicon Resources in 2017.

High Liner said Thursday its insurance provider found an ongoing lawsuit against former Rubicon owner Brian Wynn showed "breaches of the representations" during the $107 million (€95.2 million) purchase of Rubicon.
