A team of seven from JCS Fish joined the 2021 Mindful Chef Coast Clean to tackle litter and rubbish on a stretch of their local coastline at Cleethorpes.
BigFish™ Traditional Smoked Salmon and BigFish Traditional Smoked Sea Trout were each recognised for the third year running, this time with two Great Taste Stars, whilst BigFish Signature Smoked Trout and Signature Smoked Salmon received their first recognition in these awards, each receiving one Great Taste Star.
Organised by the Guild of Fine Food, the Great Taste awards are judged by discerning palates belonging to food critics, chefs, restaurateurs, retailers, food writers and journalists. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to an outstanding product, discovered through hours of blind tasting.
This is the third time in 12 months that products from our Grimsby smokehouse have been recognised for quality: BigFish Signature Oak Smoked Sea Trout won UK’s Best Smoked Fish in the Quality Food Awards, November 2019 and BigFish Signature Oak Smoked Salmon received Silver in the international Monde Selection Awards, April 2020.
Founder and director of JCS Fish, Andrew Coulbeck, says, “It was a big decision for us to go back into salmon smoking a couple of years ago but the investment in our Grimsby smokehouse has really paid off. These awards are tribute to the care and attention to detail which our smokehouse team puts in every day.”
