Ben's Fish Ltd. - Fish from Colchester
The company was founded by Ben Woodcraft in 1995. Ben was an inshore fisherman, located on the Essex coast, with twenty years’ experience who began by selling his own catch to London’s top restaurants. He saw a gap in the market for top quality seasonal produce. The business grew with Ben sourcing more and more for his London customers. The business has grown by reputation and had to expand.
Today he delivers top of the range, just-caught fish straight from our coastal waters direct to some of the top restaurants in London.
