ZS Role

Zachary Scott was engaged by the shareholders of Orca Bay Seafoods to evaluate various strategic business combinations and assist in the merger transaction with Odyssey Foods.


The merger of Orca Bay Seafoods was consummated with Odyssey Foods, a supplier of a variety of seafood products to supermarkets and restaurants under the Treasures from the Sea and Chef’s Treasures brands. Whereas, Orca Bay Seafoods emphasizes fresh, frozen products with large format retailers, Odyssey is known for its breaded products in the food service channel. The merger will allow the combined entity to offer a broader range of products to its combined customer base from a co-location that will allow more efficient value-added production.
