Bolton Group has agreed to buy California-based seafood tuna canner and value-added products producer Wild Planet Foods.

Bolton, an international consumer goods product company that owns canned tuna brands such as Rio Mare, Saupiquet and Isabel, will retain the Wild Planet name and invest in the continued growth of the company.

In a LinkedIn post Monday, Bolton described Wild Planet Foods as an "innovation leader and pioneer in the natural and sustainably caught canned seafood market in the US".

"Thanks to this new acquisition, we are accelerating our path to become a global player in iconic, sustainable, and purposeful consumer brands."
