We’ve had such great feedback about our lobsters of late… along with the brill, monkfish and mussels, so we wanted to share the story behind the great fish we offer.
Provenance is very important to us at Prepped, as is the personal touch. This is why we work with small suppliers such as Celtic Fish and Game. Established in 1985 by fisherman Geoff and his wife Sylvia, who now rely on daughters Naomi, Emma and Hannah as well as niece Zoe to help them run their operation. Throughout a year blighted with Covid-19, they have gone the extra mile to ensure customers such as us – and by extension you – have been able to continue to enjoy their great produce.
Their fish and seafood is landed from Cornish day boats at either Newlyn, Looe, Plymouth or St. Ives and due to the strict restrictions, as well as being completely sustainable, all the fish is traceable to a particular vessel. The team at Celtic will also keep us posted on what is likely to come up, and what may be harder to source – for example, as the winter sets in, it’s harder to land lobster due to the colder water, so the fishermen move their pots around closer to St. Ives to benefit from its microclimate and warmer waters. Likewise the game offered is bought directly, without any middlemen, so can be traced to source.
We’re proud to work with Celtic Fish and Game and to benefit from their experience and knowledge, as well as the great service we always receive. There are undoubtedly cheaper sources for the same products, yet with those, we would lose the benefits of working in partnership with a business that is so intertwined with the people who actually catch the fish – ultimately, though, the proof is clear for you to see whenever you choose one of our meal kits centred around their fish!
