Bolton Buying Into TriMarine, Stronger Tuna Power Block? Global, November 4, 13

A vast majority of our readers consider that the recent Bolton Group acquisition would create a stronger tuna power block in the industry. In our most recent readers' poll, as many as 76 percent of voters answered yes, and deem the purchase would create a powerful collaboration.

The Bolton Group is Europe’s largest branded tuna company, and last month announced a purchase of a stake in Tri Marine International, the worlds largest trader in tuna raw materials. The acquisition saw the alliance of a company with strong penetration in the European tuna market and a company with a presence in the strategic tuna production locations all over the world.

However, a significant 23 percent of our readers believe this was unlikely to create a stronger tuna power block and would have little impact in the tuna industry.
