Exit in 2017
Grupo Procesa (“Procesa”) produced and distributed high quality, convenient, nutritious, and great-tasting tuna-based products. The company innovated in the growing category through single-serve pouch packaging in multiple variations. These variations appeal to highly-targeted segments under the “Marina Azul®” brand in the retail grocery channel. In addition, Procesa sold nutrient-fortified tuna (“Nutri Atún®”) in single packs in mom and pop stores and in larger packages directly to government aid entities and foodservice clients.
The Company was vertically integrated through the operation of two fishing vessels, which were purchased in 4Q13. Pesca Chiapas, the fishing division of Procesa, was based in Ensenada, Baja California.
