We only use sustainable fishing sources
The health of the oceans and future fish stocks is very important to us as a company. We can only thrive as a business if the seas and oceans and fish within them continue to thrive. We believe in only sourcing fish from sustainable fishing grounds. This is why we purchase our cod, haddock and plaice from sustainable Icelandic sources, where four trawlers catch to our specific requirements. In Iceland it is illegal to discard any by-catch and a strict quota system is run by scientists to ensure the continued health of fish stocks for generations to come.
Our passion for quality extends throughout our menu, from only using chicken or meat products which fully comply with the independently assessed Red Tractor Farm Assurance criteria . and our Starchips Special Recipe Fried Fish that is coated in our family batters that are truly out of this world, to using potatoes from trusted farmers which produce Starchipenterprises unique,tasty twice fried chips.
