Disposal of Dawnfresh Frozen Scampi Business

Dawnfresh Seafoods Ltd completed the sale of their Frozen Scampi business, including their stocks, to Whitby Seafoods Ltd today 13 January 2016.

Alastair Salvesen thumbnailAlastair Salvesen CBE Chairman of Dawnfresh Seafoods commented:-

“I started work with Dawnfresh Seafoods in January 1980 and at that time its major activity was the production and sale of Scampi although they were also involved in processing Whiting and Herring in Whitehaven. A major investment was begun to expand and develop this business before moving to a state of the art seafood factory in Uddingston in 1991 where the expansion continued. Dawnfresh then acquired Silver Trout and introduced trout processing to the factory, expanding this activity with the business of Scot Trout, which included processing Salmon. A long term investment programme then began to create a vertically integrated Scottish Aquaculture business which Farms Trout in many parts of Scotland and adds value to a variety of fish in our factories in Uddingston, Arbroath and Grantown on Spey. I would like to thank all of our longstanding customers and suppliers for their support over many years and I wish the Whittle family & their team at Whitby continuing success in the future”
