Here in Devon we are extremely lucky to have so many fantastic local producers on our doorstep – from artisan cheeses and bespoke blended teas to quality sausages and handmade puddings. In a time when consumers are increasingly concerned with low food miles and the provenance of their food, locality and the ‘shop local’ campaign have never been more apt. With this in mind we are producing a blog series on our local producers and their delicious products, this week focusing on Jacksons Fishmongers.
A traditional fishmongers and smokehouse Jacksons Fishmongers was established in Newton Abbot in 1922. Sourcing the majority of their fish from nearby Brixham Jacksons focus on supplying sustainably caught fish and shellfish to their customers. All of the boats from which they buy their fish are endorsed by the Marine Stewardship Council and most are line caught in keeping with ethical guidelines or from boats adhering to the Responsible Fishing Scheme. Jacksons also produce their own smoked fish range using their on site smoker.
We stock a variety of Jacksons products including the smoked mackerel, peppered mackerel, smoked kippers and hot smoked trout which are all available in 100-200g retail packs. Recently we have also begun stocking their frozen salmon fillets which are available in individual 200g portions. Click here to view the full range and for more information.
