MWBrands was set up in 2006 when H.J. Heinz sold its European Seafood Business.
Thaï Union Frozen (TUF) acquired MW Brands on October 29th 2010, thereby strengthening its position in the global seafood business arena. It is a significant major step forward, bringing new opportunities for its customers, consumers and employees.
