that the supplier of my local sports shop (and supermarket) had the biggest selection of fish, but only had a couple of suppliers to choose from. Needless to say, they weren't too keen on my fish and there are probably loads of other people just like me.
All of this is rather annoying and as it is, we all want good customer service. Fortunately there are a few suppliers out there who really provide a good service, and have developed a reputation of being reliable.
How do you find these suppliers?
You could ask for recommendations, but why would someone recommend a supplier that they, themselves, don't have anything to do with? In fact, some suppliers will tell you they don't have anything to do with these suppliers because they don't need to as they are going to sell their own stuff! Unfortunately, you can't rely on any of this. I tried this method first, and after making quite a few calls, I came across a supplier who doesn't sell to Sports Direct at all, but offers a great selection of fresh king fish
But what about the other fish suppliers
out there? There are a lot of them, and not all of them are "suppliers".
Some of the fish suppliers will list in their website or on their Facebook page that they are wholesalers but may still sell directly to the high street fish shops and supermarkets. However, it's not always a good idea to buy directly from these types of suppliers. While they have a vast range of fish, there are two points to note:
* The fish suppliers I've mentioned in this article are actually manufacturers and retailers, not distributors, so when you go to buy your fish from them, it won't come in a bucket, bin or box like it does with the fish suppliers I've mentioned earlier. There's no warranty, and usually no packaging either.
* Even if you do manage to get your fish straight from the fish warehouse, you're going to get your fish from farmed fish. How is that even possible? It's legal to stock fish for sale straight from the fish storage tanks, but how can you know you're getting a fair deal?
Sell fresh fish directly
So, for the most part, the best route is to look for fish suppliers that do not sell directly to the high street. Not only that, but they are often known to have a large variety of fresh fish to choose from, which makes selecting the right fish much easier.
The other thing to think about when it comes to fresh fish from wholesalers is whether or not they are going to offer you some form of guarantee. Unfortunately, most people who sell directly to the high street aren't going to have such a guarantee, because the retailers make sure to sell a lot of fish to the stores they supply. There are, however, some fish suppliers that will sell directly to the high street and can, therefore, offer you a more secure deal. These include a variety of supermarkets, which provide a guarantee, as well as major fish distributors such as Jardinière.
So, there you have it, a few tips on where to look for a good supplier of fresh fish. As mentioned before, the best place to find fish wholesalers
is not in the middle of the internet, but rather, in your local fish store, especially when you are looking for fish like King Mackerel.
In fact, a reputable supplier will often offer great deals, as well as offering a guarantee, especially for customers that buy in bulk. This saves them time and money. But again, this will depend on your fish store and/or fish distributor, so be careful!
