A top award for our Signature Smoked Trout!

On Friday night, we were absolutely over the moon to pick up a Quality Food & Drink Award for our 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 Quality Food & Drink Awards have been celebrating British-made quality food and drink for 40 years, making these awards some of the most important and recognisable accolades in our industry.

Our co-founder, 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.

A great evening for us and proof that there's nothing better than years of family experience and hands on expertise when it comes to making great smoked fish!
