Welcome news on a new award

17 Apr 2020

We are delighted to report the welcome news that our BigFish Signature Oak Smoked Salmon has been awarded with a Silver Quality Award by the International Quality Institute Monde Selection in Brussels

This the second major food award for our Signature range, which was launched last year and which last November also achieved a ‘Best Smoked Fish’ award in the prestigious Quality Food & Drink Awards.

As our director, Louise Coulbeck, says, “The changes we’ve had to make to our operation to keep things going since the start of the Covid-19 epidemic have been tough on our staff, so this award is a welcome boost for the team.  Monde Selection is a major international accolade for a small business such as ours and naturally we are all absolutely delighted.”

The Monde Selection Institute has has been certifying the quality of products from around the world for nearly 60 years. For this year’s edition, 3,200 products from more than 100 countries were rigorously analysed. All were tested and tasted by expert juries composed of eminent professionals such as Michelin starred chefs, Euro-Toques, members of the “Académie Culinaire de France” and other prestigious associations. Jury members consider as many as 25 different parameters to establish the profile of each product, an evaluation which Monde Selection says "goes far beyond regular tastings."

Well done to our lovely team in Grimsby!
