Quality Seafood, Combined Strengths — Aquascot Acquires SHORE Seaweed

The Aquascot team are proud to acquire the SHORE Seaweed brand to bring the best of seafood to the retail market.

Aquascot is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of SHORE Seaweed— who join the wider Aquascot group as an integral part of our business' future.

Having been our sister company for many years, this highly regarded seaweed snacking brand has won many awards and an array of positive reviews for its delicious range of seaweed chips, pestos and ramen broths. The future is bright for SHORE as it continues its mission to make seaweed a leading sustainable food of the future.

This strategic move marks a significant milestone in the evolution of both companies and also reaffirms a shared commitment to quality seafood, sustainable practices, product excellence, and ethical standards. By coming together economies of scale can be leveraged to benefit both businesses.

While SHORE is now officially joining the Aquascot group, the same great products will be available on retail shelves and its day-to-day operations will continue to run as normal. We understand the importance of clear communication, so customers can rely on the familiar faces and dedicated teams they've come to know and trust.

"It's a really exciting time for both businesses and key for the next stage of the Shore journey! Shore Seaweed has a great team that has grown the business each year and the wider Aquascot partner support will add further benefits for the years to come. The products are fantastic and my favourite is the Sweet Sriracha chips which taste amazing and are a healthy alternative snack."

Keith Paterson, Business Lead of SHORE Seaweed said:

"The evolution of the SHORE brand over the last few years has established a strong, uniquely positioned brand that has gained great traction with consumers. With this platform, many exciting opportunities now lie ahead for the brand. As we enter this next stage in our development, being part of Aquascot provides us with solid foundations and a network to support our growth ambitions. We look forward to working together effectively with partners to strengthen the overall business, alongside the SHORE brand and products to ensure we maximise the opportunities ahead of us."
