We take an active approach to our environmental responsibilities

BigFish is a small family business with a big passion for being as 'green' as possible.

We've been part of the Government’s ‘Investors in the Environment’ (iiE) programme for the past four years, with Silver accreditation. This commits us to an active environmental policy, with set performance targets on a whole range of issues, including energy, waste management, transport and community involvement.  We are audited annually against those target, most recently achieving a 93% overall success rate. 

Our internal Eco Group manages the environmental aspect of everything we do and is always searching for improvements.  In 2019 we were particularly focused on cutting packaging. We've already made some major changes but 2020 will bring further improvements as we work towards our goal of ensuring all our packaging is recyclable in normal domestic waste streams.

  • “I'm particularly proud of our waste reduction programme, which includes making the most of every single salmon - nothing is wasted, even the skin and bones are turned into animal feed. And any odd shaped pieces we can't use for BigFish are all sold to our local community through our factory shop.”
