Salmon supplier scoops international award

BigFish award winning salmon from Grimsby based JCS Fish

LEADING salmon and trout supplier JCS Fish is celebrating another international award for its BigFish Signature Smoked range.

The Grimsby based company has won a Silver Quality Award from the International Quality Institute Monde Selection in Brussels, which has been certifying the quality of products from around the world for nearly 60 years. It was due to have been presented at a Monde event in Munich at the end of this month, but that has now been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

This is the is the second major food accolade for JCS’s premium BigFish Signature range, which was launched last year. Then in November it achieved a ‘Best Smoked Fish’ recognition at the prestigious Quality food and Drinks Awards.

Louise Coulbeck from JCS Fish said:

\’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 Silver Quality Award is given to products of exceptional quality and guarantees to consumers that Big Fish™ Signature Oak Smoked Salmon has been tested and approved by a panel of independent industry experts. For Monde Selection 2020, 3,200 products from more than 100 countries were rigorously analysed. They 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 up to 25 different parameters to establish the profile of each product, an evaluation which goes far beyond regular tastings.
