Dawnfresh Seafoods has bought Hampshire trout processor Silver Trout for an undisclosed sum.
The move will see Dawnfresh switch the new acquisition’s production to its £12m seafood processing facility in Bothwell Park, Lanarkshire. The company said the deal was the first move in a campaign to position itself as one of the UK’s leading seafood suppliers.
The acquisition will allow it to develop a range of trout-based added value recipe dishes for both the retail and foodservice markets.
Dawnfresh md Andy Stapley said the move followed a period when the two companies had been working together.
