Food hall launches 100% traceable and sustainable fish butchery
Kent-based food hall Macknade has launched a new sustainable fish butchery to boost its environmentally friendly offering.
The retailer has launched the counter in partnership with Pesky Fish which supplies fish direct from fishermen with 100% traceability from boat to plate.
Stefano Cuomo, managing director of Macknade said: “Every single fish will be traceable right down to the boat and fisherman who caught it. Pesky Fish use only non-destructive methods of fishing.
“The range on offer will constantly be changing and developing depending on what it is in season.”
Recently the company has expanded its range of environmentally friendly products while reducing plastic waste. The fish butchery, said Cuomo, will follow similar practices, enabling shoppers to buy their fish with a clear conscience.
“We plan to mirror our approach to meat with an ethos grounded in provenance, knowledge and skill,” he said. “Our aim at Macknade is to continually move forward to a sustainable world where, as humans, we are equitable stakeholders alongside our fellow flora and fauna. How we consume fish is central to this.”
The fish butchery will be the latest expansion of Macknade’s award-winning food hall, which last year celebrated its 40th year of trading.
