Cripps Pemberton Greenish’s corporate team has advised the Kent-based Nortrade Foods group on its acquisition of the shares of S. & A. Hart Limited, who operate out of Billingsgate Fish Market.

With a head office just outside Hawkhurst, Nortrade Foods supplies frozen seafood imported from around the world, to wholesalers, retailers and home delivery businesses in the UK and Ireland. Prior to the acquisition, growth has been organic, driven by Nortrade’s reputation for quick delivery times and supplying a wide range of quality seafood.

The acquisition is the first step in Nortrade’s strategy to expand into new markets and increase the frequency of deliveries into London and the south east.

Cripps Pemberton Greenish advised Nortrade on all legal aspects of the transaction. The Cripps team was led by Lowri Jones, with support from Lorraine Reynolds and Megan Pitt.

Commenting on the legal support provided, Andrew Sturgeon, Finance and Operations Manager of Nortrade Foods, said: “The Cripps team was fantastic throughout the whole process; we really couldn’t have done it without them. Their professionalism, knowledge and experience is always highly appreciated and I look forward to working together again in the future”.
