Sustainability

Our shared commitment to sustainability and ethical food at Flying Fish Seafoods

We have a commitment to deliver high quality fish to our customers in various hospitality establishments across the country. We promote, educate and point our customers to choose the ethical and sustainable products as best we can to preserve our oceans stocks.  Today more than ever this means using sustainably sourced products that come from suppliers, fishermen and producers with high standards of animal welfare.  At the same time, we have a responsibility to our environment to ensure that where practicable the resources used in the preparation and packing are sustainably sourced, effectively used and sustainably disposed of or recycled.

We have created a sustainability and ethical philosophy that embodies and embraces the key elements that our suppliers, customers and employers fulfil or are working towards.

The philosophy is a living document as the business moves forward and will be updated periodically showing evidence that is most suited to our circumstances and development of this journey.

We will be active in our local community through schools, businesses and charities in association with the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, to enthuse children and others about seafood and where their seafood comes from.

Our anti-slavery and human rights procedures are encompassed within our sustainability policy and is communicated to all our staff. The management has a zero-tolerance approach to acts of slavery and human trafficking.

Our Sustainability Policy supports our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and improving our environmental performance as part of our business strategy and operating methods, encouraging customers, suppliers and our staff to do the same.

“We’ve been using Flying Fish for a number of years now. Their experience and understanding of the seasons, fish markets and chef requirements makes them ideal partners for The Hand and Flowers. The high standard of fish we receive on a daily basis from the Cornish day boats is outstanding and is an essential part of the produce driven menu that we have here at the pub”
