Local sourcing means fresher fish. Local fishermen give us an amazing supply of the freshest fish available, from sea bass, Dover sole and skate through to grey mullet and cod. We source many other sustainable varieties when in season. During the summer we also supply lots of local lobsters, crabs and shellfish.
We only transport fish across the country if it cannot be sourced locally, reducing food miles and our carbon footprint. As transport is an ever-increasing cost, it makes commercial sense too.
All our fish is fully traceable, from the moment it is caught to its arrival in your kitchen.
Our fishmongers take pride in their skill, which they pass on through their training of each and every new member of the team.
Our staff are fully trained to the highest standards across all our depots.
We invest time and resources gaining and maintaining British Retail Consortium (BRC) Technical Standard certification across the business which is managed under the Defra regulations.
