Thai Union to buy US$18m stake in India’s Avanti Feeds’ unit

THAI Union Group Pcl, the world’s largest canned tuna maker, said the day before yesterday it would spend 1.25 billion Indian rupees (US$18.80 million) to buy a 40 per cent stake in the shrimp processing unit of India’s Avanti Feeds Ltd.

The purchase of the stake in Avanti Frozen Foods Private Ltd will add production capacity to meet growing demand, the Thai firm said in a statement.

The deal will also help to offset a hit to shrimp production in Thailand, where output is still less than half of the level seen in 2013 before the outbreak of early mortality syndrome, Thai Union said.

India’s shrimp farming sector has not been affected by a serious disease outbreak, it added.

Avanti Frozen Foods was set up in 2015 to focus on shrimp processing in India for export and domestic markets.

It is building a new plant at Yerravaram in East Godavari District, about 80 km from the existing plant at Gopalapuram, to triple capacity to 75 tonnes a day from 25 tonnes now.

Thai Union aims to boost profits as a result of the stake purchase in the first year, the company said.

Thai Union has said it was looking for further acquisitions to help it achieve a revenue target of $8 billion by 2020 after the company scrapped a $1.5 billion acquisition of US rival Bumble Bee Seafoods in December.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
