Official – Now frying new potatoes

“It has been a difficult year for potatoes because of the severely wet summer and autumn of 2012.  This meant that the main crop potato wasn’t the best of quality.  We have always bought the best quality that has been available to us.

Thanks to all our customers in appreciation of your understanding through the difficult time of the...

They are exceptionally passionate about the future of the fishing grounds…did you know that due to their stringent controls fish stocks are now at levels not previously seen since before the second world war. Something we should carefully consider and embrace! At certain times of the year they are restricted to fishing in certain zones so that spawning areas are left alone. They believe in protecting the fish through careful management so that fish supplies have a secure future for many generations to come. I was sad to leave Norway and it was great to catch up with the other finalists…I would see them again at the...
