Risk Capital Partners, the private equity fund owned by Luke Johnson, has acquired Seafood Partners, a fresh fish distributor, in a £12m deal. Johnson’s buyout vehicle has acquired a minority stake, thought to be around 40%. The company suppliers wild and farmed fish plus seafood to restaurants such as J Sheekey and the Loch Fyne chain. Mr Johnson said: “People are willing to experiment with fish and it’s a growing market.” Johnson is an investor in Giraffe and a former stakeholder in Pizza Express and Strada.
