From the depths of South Devon you will find a small team producing delicious handmade fishcakes and luxurious seafood pâtés that have recently landed into Tesco and Asda.

The company has been running for nearly 3 years and was set up by Jonathan Bailey at the age of 22 from a small kitchen on a farm in Dartmoor where he and his mother handmade products every day. Jonathan would then drive up to London and sell to small delis from cool boxes he kept in the car. The company has now moved into a 6,000 square foot factory producing thousands a day supplying major retailers in the UK.

The company has sustainable and charitable credentials and is proud to support the local community and uses local suppliers where possible (within a 12 miles radius). Our sights are set high with huge expansion plans for 2014 supplying most major supermarkets in the country and even Europe with major progress already being made with a bright future ahead. Proud to support Local business, The Potted Fish Co. encourages others to promote buying local and promote growing British business, we would like your support too.

The fishcakes, either crab or prawn, boast sustainable credentials and are handmade giving you a truly scrumptious and indulgent cake; just like you would find in a good gastro pub.

Other benefits include the healthy side being only 139 kcal with less than 1.5g of fat. We recommend shallow frying them with low calorie spray. This will add a little kcal however the taste sensation of a crunchy crisp cake with a centre packed full of flavour and wholesome chunky ingredients far out ways the oven cooking method. These Fishcakes recently launched into Tesco In October and you can grab a box of 2 cakes for just £2.

The ’Potted’ products are delicious and wholesome. There are two variations of crab; ‘Old English’ and ‘Chilli’. Excellent as a Christmas starter with some piping hot toast or fantastic in a meal such as crab linguine; simple, easy and extremely effective for the perfect affordable meal showcasing sustainable Devon crab.

The potted smoked mackerel with horseradish is perfect for seafood lovers boasting strong flavours from the locally sourced mackerel with just a very mild hint of horseradish. Perfect with a salad or a jacket potato.

The newest of the Potted lines the famous ‘Potted Shrimps’. This 65g product offers affordability and quality. The product is divine served at room temperature with ‘fresh out the oven’ bread. It is the perfect treat for Christmas and its vintage packaging adds to the theatre of the Christmas spread and all for only £2.49.
