Ewings Seafood, Northern Ireland’s leading fishmonger, has introduced a home delivery service offering fresh and healthy fish.
Based on the Shankill Road in Belfast, the company is providing fish boxes delivered in the city by the company’s11-strong fleet on refrigerated vans. Fish parcels of at least £25 can be ordered and paid for by phone whenever possible for same day delivery. The shop continues to be open to customers.
Director Crawford Ewing explains: “We want to help existing and new customers, who are now unable to visit our shop, to still be able to enjoy healthy and nutritious fish at this very difficult time and so we decided to introduce our first-ever home delivery service. If people call our shop and specify either fresh cod and salmon and smoked salmon they want and pay by card, we’ll deliver straight to their door,” he adds.
The company will also slice and prepare the fish for easy cooking. The company sources fresh fish from trawlers mostly landing daily in Kilkeel.
Ewing’s Seafoods in Belfast, the leading Northern Ireland fish and seafood retailer, has gained the highest global standard for quality food, processing and safety for consumers.
