Supplier Spotlight: Hjesseseafoods
Creating an online supermarket that allows people to connect to their local suppliers has given many of our customers the opportunity to see the real difference between what they might usually buy from a Supermarket and the incredible fresh produce we can bring to their door from our independent suppliers.
The feedback we regularly receive about the seafood from Harry Jesse Son & Co never fails to show the difference that buying from a passionate, knowledgeable, family run independent business can make.
“Thank you so much for my first delivery today, cant believe the freshness and quality of the fish, looks like its just been caught!! Will not be going back to the supermarkets, can not wait to start cooking…Top notch!”
“Brilliant service, excellent quality. This has made me a fish convert!”
“I can’t believe the difference in quality to what we usually have – never tasted salmon so good!”
So here’s a little bit about the people behind the produce and the great supplier that makes up part of the very special Team LIDS.
Our fishmonger – Harry Jesse Son & Co Ltd started trading from the original Wholesale Fish Market in Great Charlotte Street, Liverpool, in 1942. Inward deliveries were made by horse and cart from the local rail network from all over the country.
The company moved to temporary premises on Prescot Road, where it remained for 25 years under the guidance of Harry’s son, Stan Jesse. They are now under third generation control with Stan’s son Nick Jesse. He oversees the running of the business with 25 years of knowledge and experience passed on through the generations. So when you order through LIDS, you’re getting fish from this family led expert.
Nick is incredibly passionate about what he does and is always willing to chat to customers about what they might want or need. So, even though more shops are opening and we’re heading towards the new normal – don’t forget that by using LIDS you’re supporting great independents and people like Nick; who have been there for customers throughout Covid19 and will continue to bring you amazing quality seafood long after too.
