Where do we source our seafood?

New Wave offers the widest selection of superb-quality, responsibly sourced seafood available to the caterer in the UK, usually stocking over 50 types of fresh fish and shellfish at any one time.


■ Our fresh fish and shellfish is caught in Britain’s coastal waters, mainly in Devon, Cornwall and Scotland.

■ We buy daily, direct from small day-boats and the main fish auctions.

■ We carry an extensive range of farmed fish, including salmon, trout, halibut, sea bass, gilthead bream and stone bass.

■ A large shellfish tank at our premises enables us to provide you with lobster at short notice.

■ Most of our smoked products are from local producers, including Severn and Wye Smokery.

Food safety and hygiene

New Wave takes food safety and hygiene extremely seriously. Our 13,000sq ft unit is purpose-built, with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure maximum freshness and cleanliness. We have dedicated separate fish and speciality areas, top-of-the-range hygienic safety flooring, a refrigerated preparation area and several walk-in cold-rooms and fridges, keeping the 'cold chain' maintained at all times.

Our premises are EEC approved (certification number 853/2004), and at the last inspection we were found to be fully compliant in all aspects of our health and safety audit.

We have full traceability on all our seafood.
