Nippon Suisan Kaisha (Nissui)-owned UK processor and trader Flatfish has acquired fellow Grimsby-based home delivery seafood supplier Regal Fish for an undisclosed sum, the company confirmed to IntraFish.

"Both businesses are excited about the acquisition and feel positive that the two businesses, working alongside each other, can enhance Nissui’s presence in the UK seafood market," Flatfish said.

Japanese seafood giant Nissui acquired a 75 percent stake in Flatfish for an undisclosed amount in May 2019, promising at the time that it would invest and grow the business.
