Business description

The company is an established and successful seafood trader, specialising in the provision of fish, shellfish and co-products for major blue-chip clients in the food, baby food and pet food markets on a global scale.

Working closely with processors and manufacturers, the company primarily deals with seafood co-products, which are processed for use in products fit for human consumption, offering an innovative way for suppliers to fully utilise all of their materials and minimise wastage. 

Subsequently, the company has experienced considerable expansion since its foundation, with its innovative solutions for processors enabling it to stand apart from competitors and establish a dominant market share in a number of buoyant industries. 

The owners are now offering the company for sale as part of the founding shareholders’ retirement plans.


  • Renowned as a leading supplier within its industry, owing to its extensive in-house experience and innovative, highly profitable solutions that minimise waste and support sustainability. 
  • Strong international presence, working with over 110 major clients based across the globe, benefitting from high retention rates, with several key relationships now spanning over 20 years. 
  • Clients include a number of market-leading, blue-chip organisations, with the company having firmly established itself as a trusted, reliable and honest business that is unique within its industry. 
  • Benefits from a long-standing and highly experienced management team, which has demonstrated the skills and expertise to effectively manage operations on an ongoing basis. 
  • Operates from leasehold head office premises based in South England, with strategically located satellite offices based across the world.
