Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Fresh Shellfish Wholesale & Exporter which is located in the South West Of England. The business was established by our clients in 2017 and they are now offering the business for sale so that they can concentrate on other business interests.
Since ownership they have invested heavily in new equipment which is all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated and employs the help of 2 full time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £881,290. The owners have over 30 years experience in the industry and have depurating capacity for 24 tonnes per week and storage for 8 tonnes of live shellfish per week. The business is approved for all fishery products including scallop shucking and filleting. The business is also approved for wholesale in UK and EU and has traded in the EU for the past five years and has a built a large customer base. They also have an operators licence and own Vivier truck for EU exporting. They also have a large pool of loyal fishermen who supply a range of fresh fish.

We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish to do so by implementing a vigorous advertising and marketing campaign. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity for an existing operator to expand through acquisition which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended.
