Dawnfresh supplies fresh and frozen trout, frozen breaded seafood, hot & cold smoked fish, marinated fish and mussels to the leading UK multiples together with specialist independent niche retailers.
Dawnfresh works closely with consumers (running tasting sessions, focus groups and blue sky workshops) to make using fish easy for consumers and offers superb product quality, whether frozen or chilled. Its innovative product developers and chefs have an enviable reputation for creating new recipes, cuts and packaging formats that are convenient and healthy with broad appeal.
Dawnfresh sources scampi from the deep coastal waters of Scotland, Northern England and Ireland, all wild caught by local trawler men, mainly from small day boats. Dawnfresh takes pride in being part of a sustainable local fishing industry.
Langoustines (scampi) are the only shellfish species managed through the Common Fisheries Policy, and Dawnfresh works closely with UK, Scottish and Irish authorities and fishing organisations to ensure sustainability and responsible fishing.
