Leroy Seafood Denmark has acquired Danish whitefish supplier Mondo Mar Marine Foods, Leroy Seafood Denmark CEO Morten Nielsen confirmed to IntraFish.

The Hanstholm-based whitefish supplier mainly focuses on saithe and cod, Nielsen said.

The acquisition, which was announced on Dec.23, will be backdated from 1. July.

The whitefish processor from the Jutland region will become a part of Leroy's portfolio of companies, which includes Thorfisk, Scan Fish, Brdr. Schlie's Fiskeeksport, Johnsen Fish Wholesale, and P. Taabbel & Co.

Mondo Mar Marine Foods is a natural fit for the group as the two groups operates in similar markets, Nielsen said.
