A family business started by the owner Les Salisbury who has been fishing for shrimps since he was a lad, going out on the horse and cart.
Fishing for shrimps was the main part of the business, and supplying local Hotels and Restaurants throughout Cumbria and North Lancashire with Potted Shrimps and all types of Fish and Game has increased over the years, with a reputation for quality and service.
Furness Fish Poultry and Game Supplies sent all their own shrimps to be processed at the factory in Flookburgh, under the brand name of “Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps”.
The Business thrived in Ulverston, so much so, we outgrew the building and built a modern purpose factory in Flookburgh. These new facility includes:
EC approved plant, 100% veterinary inspection, Cold storage and freezers, Customised map for retail, Overflow packing, Refrigerated and frozen delivery
This new building is next door to the original old Flookburgh Fishermen Factory which has been modernised and mechanical shrimp peelers are installed to peel shrimps in a hygienic environment.
