Salmofood obtains financing from JP Morgan

JP Morgan has relied on the New York office of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, Claro y Cía in Chile and Peruvian firm Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano Abogados for the provision of a financing facility to Chilean local fish food producer Salmofood worth US$40 million.
Salmofood turned to Carey on the deal that closed on 2 January. Alicorp, Peru’s largest consumer goods group and Salmofood’s parent company, guaranteed the loan.

The Peruvian conglomerate turned to Carey when it bought Salmofood from local fish producers Invermar, Degán and Pesquera Yadrán in September last year.
