BigFish Signature Smoked Trout is Q Award winner!

On Friday 22nd November 2019, the team at JCS Fish was over the moon to pick up a Quality Food & Drink Award for the company’s new BigFish Signature Smoked Sea Trout, which collected the top prize for Best Smoked Fish at a glittering event at The Brewery in London.

 

The ‘Q Awards’ have been celebrating British-made quality food and drink for 40 years, making this awards scheme one of the most important and recognisable accolades in our industry.

 

Co-founder of JCS Fish, Louise Coulbeck was there with financial controller (and future daughter in law!) Rosie Knight, to pick up the award.

 

Louise says, “This is a particularly big win for us as a small family firm as it proves that our products can compete on the national stage.  Our whole Grimsby team has put so much work into our new smokehouse and we think Signature is the best smoked fish we’ve ever produced… so it’s really brilliant that the national Q Award judges thought the same!”

 

The runners-up in the Best Smoked Fish category were Alfred Enderby’s Traditional Smoked Haddock (also made in Grimsby) and Asda Smoked Salmon.

 

The BigFish Signature Smoked range is available from independent retailers and farm shops around the UK as well as direct through the BigFish website, where a Black Friday free delivery offer will go live this week.

 

JCS Fish recorded sales growth of 63% by volume in the year to 31.08.2019.
