Real Good Food Company (RGFC) is selling its Five Star Fish division to British Seafood for £35 million.
This sale leaves the company with bakery, baking ingredients and sugar companies. These include Hayden’s Bakeries, Seriously Scrumptious, Renshaw and Napier Brown Foods.
RGFC said this week that it aims to grow both through acquisitions and organically.
In 2003, RGFC acquired Hayden’s Bakeries and Seriously Scrumptious and, the following year, acquired Grimsby-based Five Star Fish.
The fish company supplies value-added, prepared frozen fish to the foodservice sector. It deli-vers to 100 customers nationwide and employs approximately 200 people.
RFGC also acquired Eurofoods in 2004, trading as Coolfresh Distribution, but closed it in 2005, when it bought Napier Brown Foods and Renshaw.
