FISH Seafood Deli, a successful and well established seafood company based in West Cork, have developed and launched a new product range under the brand name ‘Fresh Fish Deli’.

Made using locally caught fish from DC Fish’s trawler off Union Hall and a network of local fishing boats from West Cork,  this delicious range of fish cakes and pies can be put straight in the oven in their containers and are ready in 20 minutes.

Business partners Monica Buckley of DC Fish and Peter Shanahan of Fish Seafood Deli are both well recognised in the Irish Seafood Sector with DC Fish receiving the award for ‘Fishing Enterprise of the Year’ at the BIM Awards in 2016 and Peter Shanahan, a finalist in the 2016 BIM Young Fishmonger of the Year.

Monica Buckley explains their plans for this year; ‘We are both very excited about this new range. We are, after all, seafood people. Peter is a master fishmonger and seafood retailer and along with my husband Niall Deasy, I run a successful seafood business. We are proud to say our products are now stocked in Super Valu stores in Munster and they will be available nationwide this year. We are delighted to be taking part in Supervalu’s Food Academy and working with BIM’s Seafood Innovation Academy who are assisting us with another new product concept – so watch this space!’

Fish Seafood Deli and DC Fish collectively employ 25 people. DC Fish operate a successful seafood business model that offers a ‘frozen at sea’ product range to domestic, retail and export driven wholesale seafood business.  Fish Seafood Deli has gone from being a retail operation to selling fresh fish directly to hotels and restaurants and from two mobile units.

 So look out for the delicious new ‘Fresh Fish Deli’ range in a Supervalu store near you.  For more information on Fresh Fish Deli products, visit www.westcorkgourmet.ie
