Catch-Up: Summer 2022

A new journey for Richard Collins

In April, the founder of Collins Seafoods, Richard Collins, retired after starting the business in 1980 and leading as managing director for 42 years.

Richard has had a rewarding and successful journey which he began by getting up at four in the morning every day to deliver products to pubs, homes and restaurants in his own van.

He believed that everybody should be able to eat the finest quality fish possible, and when he expanded the company, he recruited a team who followed his ethos, the majority of whom have worked under his stewardship for several years.

Richard has achieved some fantastic things as an entrepreneur he lived and breathed the job, dedicating himself to providing Frozen at Sea products for businesses, nationally and internationally.

When Richard stepped down as managing director, he handed the role over to former sales and general manager Craig English, who has been with the company for 23 years.

Craig is happy to be continuing Richard's work with the dedicated team at Collins and can't wait to see what the future holds.

Proud of the empire he has built and how business is continually progressing, Richard remains close to his former colleagues and is no stranger to the office. Some days, he even turns up on his electric bike!

In his retirement, Richard still likes to keep busy - he has been preparing horses for sale or for racing. We hope that he can enjoy a well-earned rest sometimes too!
