    James Knight of Mayfair strengthens sashimi business with a merger with Aberdeen Sea Products

    01/08/2013

    James Knight of Mayfair today announced that it has merged with Aberdeen Sea Products, a specialist sashimi wholesaler.

    Aberdeen Sea Products, an independent company, has a niche supplying some of London's best Japanese restaurants and kitchens, including Kurumaya, Miyako, Soho Japan and Tsuru.

    The deal reinforces James Knight of Mayfair's commitment  to strategically invest in specialist, high-growth sectors within the seafood industry; the London Japanese market is highly fragmented, with over 450 restaurants spread across the Capital.

    Paschal Tiernan, Managing Director, James Knight of Mayfair said, "We are delighted to have finalised this merger. It further underlines our commitment to providing the best quality, freshest fish in London and will help us meet the growing demand for healthy, authentic sushi and sashimi. We are looking forward to strengthening our ties with the Japanese market and to diversifying our client base."

    Matthew Anglin, Managing Director, Aberdeen Sea Products said "Myself and the team at Aberdeen Sea Products are delighted to be working with James Knight of Mayfair; they share our ethos for independence, quality and 'family style' customer service. Japanese cuisine is particularly difficult to address from a sustainability point of view. For this reason, we are very pleased to be working with the leaders in sustainability."
