“Since 2007, Direct Seafoods have been privileged to sponsor the Roux Scholarship, as it is a fantastic opportunity for young chefs of the future to develop their talents.”
Direct Seafoods’ 11 unique fish and seafood businesses are located around the UK, close to all major fishing ports. Although set in different locations, they are all driven by a shared desire to provide chefs with quality, fresh fish and seafood. But we’re not just a wholesaler and supplier; as passionate fish experts, we share our unrivalled industry knowledge with our customers and seek to inspire your menus.
Sourcing fish responsibly is paramount to our business. We passionately believe in promoting wild, sustainable, or responsibly farmed species. And of course, we only ship fish across the country if they are not available locally – minimum food miles means maximum freshness!
Our buyers source from local markets each day, to ensure the best of the catch is available to deliver to our customers. Our fishmongers are trained in knife skills, filleting, skinning and boning of all types of fish and seafood preparation. We train our sales team to be able to advise with menu planning, providing seasonality information and keeping up to date with external factors affecting the market.
Of all the awards in the industry, the Roux Scholarship is the most widely respected, and so Direct Seafoods are extremely proud to be a sponsor since 2007.
