Nothing in the provisions of this section or RSA 211:27 shall prohibit the processing and distributing within the state by packers or processors located within or without the state of processed lobster meat for the purpose of canning or freezing for resale as processed stews, newburgs, chowders or pies, or prohibit wholesalers and retailers from selling processed lobster meat packed in stews, newburgs, chowders or pies providing they are licensed as required by RSA 211:38.
