Our Responsibility

Since our inception, we have considered our responsibility to help ensure the future of the planet to be a cornerstone of our vision for the company.

We take the trust that customers and partners place in us very seriously. Rest assured that you can have confidence in our proven track record for timely delivery of high-quality products around the world.

Taking Sustainability Seriously

Eager in our support of the UN’s Sustainable Development goals, we are keen to be at the forefront of positive change within the seafood industry, with specific regard to goals 12, 13 and 14, as outlined here: Sustainability Goals.

We continually strive to reduce our carbon footprint by participating in recycling initiatives, actively reducing our waste and working with outside organisations to source eco-friendly packaging. We are committed to taking an innovative approach in order to tackle pressing issues like overfishing, which is why we have partnered with Norcod cod farm, who provide a cutting-edge solution to the matter of dwindling numbers of wild cod.

Frozen at Sea

Not only does frozen seafood offer better value for money, it also plays a huge part in the reduction of food waste.

Buying frozen doesn’t mean compromising on the quality either. In fact, freezing locks in nutrition and products are produced with less additives, making frozen seafood a healthier and more sustainable alternative.

Supporting Our Community

With offices based in the North of England, our close-knit team are true community champions passionate about supporting various local charities and carrying out volunteering endeavours.

Valuing Our People

It is our social responsibility to take care of our staff. We are proud to provide our colleagues both in our offices and in our affiliated processing plant with a safe workspace, in which we adhere to a code of conduct that ensures the personal dignity, equal treatment and rights of each individual.

Taking Pride In Our Products

Mutually beneficial partnerships with trusted suppliers allows for us to ensure that our nutritious, additive free products are of the highest possible quality. Our certifications are outlined below.
