A judge has given preliminary approval to a bid from an affiliate of Canada’s Cooke Aquaculture to purchase the shuttered operations of Uruguay’s largest processor, Fripur, a Cooke spokeswoman confirmed.
Cooke Seafood USA, which last year bought Wanchese Fish Company, put in a bid for 100% of Fripur’s operations in December alongside a rival bid from a co-operative of Fripur workers. But the judge ruled out the cooperative’s bid and approved one from Cooke Seafoods.
