Being nestled on the east coast, living in a town that boasted what was historically the UKs third largest port, some would say it’s fate that for two generations our family has sat firmly amongst the largest UK suppliers of seafood.
My Father, Walter Earnest Simpson founded our business in the 80s back when the fishing industry thrived and Hull was knee deep in vessels importing and exporting. He saw an opportunity to use his skill as a filleter to provide for his family and with the support of my Mother, his business grew beyond their wildest dreams.
As times have changed so have consumers needs and in the late 90s, I joined the family business and proudly took things forward into the new realm of supermarkets and traceability.
As the business has continued to grow, our family ethic and heritage is something that has withstood the test of time. Along with a hand picked specialist team, we are constantly developing our range of products and are proud to supply some of the largest supermarkets within the UK and Europe. We pride ourselves on ethically sourcing and supplying fish from sustainable waters, understanding the market and perhaps most importantly, respecting the impact that fishing has on the planet.
Our most recent accomplishment, is the imminent launch of our own branded range ‘Hooked On Fish’. A premium collection aimed at fish lovers looking for a restaurant quality experience at home.
The industry continues to be our passion and in our mind, that is the key to success.
