Native to UK shores, herring is both a traditional favourite and an excellent source of nutrition: boasting fatty acids and Vitamin B12 amongst its nutritional content. This salty, oily fish is as versatile to cook with as it is delicious raw (or with a pinch of lemon), making it one of the most popular tinned products we sell.
HOW ARE JOHN WEST HERRINGS SOURCED?
Our herring are caught off the Irish port of Killybegs, before being transported to a canning plant in Donegal to be traditionally hand-packed and distributed. As one of the world’s (and indeed, the UK’s) most abundant fish, herring are a great alternative to more endangered species, and fishing crews limit their catch to just twice a year, ensuring that we can always continue to enjoy this delicious snack.
