We take an active approach to our environmental responsibilities
BigFish is a small family business with a big passion for being as 'green' as we possibly can.
We've been part of the Government’s ‘Investors in the Environment’ (iiE) programme for the past three years, most recently achieving Silver Level accreditation. iiE commits us to an active environmental policy, with set targets for our performance on a whole range of issues, including energy use, waste management, transport and community involvement. We are then audited annually on our performance against those targets. In our most recent Investors in the Environment audit, we achieved a 93% overall success rate.
Our internal Eco Group looks at the environmental aspect of everything we do and is always searching for improvements. This year, we have been particularly focused on packaging, which has included reinventing the packaging for our new fish cake range to make it entirely 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.”
