Why We Love Fish

Back to why we love fish


John West doesn’t just bring you ordinary, run of the mill fish. That would be too easy. Instead, we go out of our way, in the worst possible conditions to catch the very best quality fish the oceans and rivers of the world have to offer. And by the best, we mean thoughtfully sourced, carefully caught and hand-picked. Everything it takes to safeguard our reputation for only putting our name to the highest quality fish.

To maintain this quality, our speedy canning process then locks in all the natural goodness and preserves that unmistakable John West taste. It’s a smart but simple process that we’ve become very good at, probably because we’ve been doing it since 1857.

This all means that when you finally take that can of John West fish out of your cupboard and open it, the fish inside will smell as deliciously fresh as it did on the day it was canned. Which is more than can be said for the boots of the fisherman who caught it!
