The origins of Collins Seafoods

Collins Seafoods was founded in 1980 by Richard Collins, who began by delivering products to pubs, homes and restaurants in his van, before the business rapidly developed and he needed a helping hand!

Over the years, Richard expanded from local deliveries in the North East to covering Northumberland, North Yorkshire, and Cumbria. It wasn't long before he was delivering nationally and internationally, and to aid distribution, in 2011 Richard agreed a deal to buy Leeds-based company Wraggs Seafoods, which is now Collins Seafoods Yorkshire. This allowed him to efficiently supply the whole of the North of England with his top quality Frozen at Sea products.

In 2018, Collins Seafoods was bought by a fishing company, Seagold Limited. Seagold is owned by Samherji, which was founded in 1983 and is one of the largest fishing companies in Europe. It operates a fleet of fishing vessels and fish factories, and exports its own products under the "Icefresh Seafood" brand.

Being owned by Seagold means that our customers receive fully traceable products from the sea to their plate and we have plenty of fish coming in from a reliable fleet of vessels. Additionally, Samherji operates with high levels of sustainability, which aligns with the ethos at Collins Seafoods.

"We use the nose to tail approach in all our products." - Samherji.

We are proud to say that we are the only Frozen at Sea fish company in the UK owned by a fishing company and our customers are buying their products directly from the fishermen themselves.
