Fish farming: Lerøy acquires Dutch interests

The Norwegian Lerøy Seafood Group ASA (LSG) has agreed to purchase 50.1% of the shares in Rode Beheer BV (Rode) in The Netherlands for EUR 15.0 million.

fish farmingRode is one of the leading producers of processed seafood in The Netherlands, including a wide range of smoked, marinated and freshly packed products, as well as frozen products manufactured using Norwegian salmon.

 

LSG says in a prss release that with its well established customer network within European grocery chains, as well as airline and other large-scale catering operations, Rode is a company that fits well with LSG's strategy to develop the Group's global sales network.

 

In 2010 Rode had a turnover of MEUR 50.6 with an operating profit of MEUR 3.9 and profit after tax of MEUR 2.8. The company has 87 employees and is located in the town of Urk. LSG and Rode have been co-operative partners for many years, and LSG is looking forward to working with Rode's skilled managers in order to develop the company further.
