Who are Princes

Princes History

We have constantly evolved and innovated to meet the changing needs of consumers.

Princes’ heritage dates back to 1880 when it was established as a fish importing business in Liverpool, the city where our international headquarters continue to be located today.

During our early years, Princes built strong foundations for the future by introducing a wealth of new products and brands into the market that are now the recognisable household names valued by consumers across the world.

Since becoming incorporated within the Mitsubishi Corporation in 1989, Princes has made 22 mergers and acquisitions, which combined with ongoing organic growth, has helped us continue to diversify and become one of Europe’s leading grocery suppliers.
