We advocate that Severn & Wye Smokery is the chef's supplier, we do not supply any of the major retailers. We are a food service specialist that undertakes all aspects of production; we do not contract any of our work out.
Severn & Wye Smokery has a thriving bespoke development kitchen, situated above the smokery. We are very fortunate to have a development chef who has vast experience within the industry but also has a first rate knowledge of production on the smokery floor.
Our development chef Steve Scott has designed and successfully produced many bespoke fish dishes which have been listed on menus for Wimbledon, Ryder Cup, Royal Ascot, British Airways, Virgin upper class to name a few. We have found the key to successful product development has been our ability to communicate directly with the chefs and understand what they are trying to achieve.
We have over time manufactured several added value products (smoked salmon roulades, smoked salmon terrines, smoked salmon canapés, smoked salmon pates etc) to some of Britain’s largest food service suppliers. In 2006 we won the British Frozen Food Federation’s Product of the Year Award for our Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Blini.
Within the smokery we have perfected a vast catalogue of methods for curing fish in many different ways. This experience coupled with our open-minded approach has satisfied the demands of some of the toughest and most demanding chefs in the world.
We are delighted to name among our smoked fish customers many of Britain’s finest food halls, hotels and restaurants including Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Harrods, The Ritz, The Berkeley, Claridges, The Savoy, Wheelers of St James, Bibendum to name a few. This year we also supplied our Severn & Wye Seafood restaurant to the Royal Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and the Ryder Cup and we’d be delighted for you to join them in buying our smoked fish and smoked salmon.
We are also very experienced exporters, sending weekly shipments of smoked salmon and other smoked fish and smoked poultry to Italy, Greece, Dubai, Bahrain and France and the Far East. As we do in the UK we target the finest purchasers of high quality smoked salmon, smoked fish and smoked poultry wherever we trade.
Please give us a call and we’ll happily send you some samples so you can judge the quality for yourself.
Finally, for wholesale customers, our Bespoke Hamper Service makes the perfect corporate gift. If you’re looking for a way to leave a lasting impression with your most important corporate customers then look no further than a Bespoke Hamper.
