‘Fish City’ in Belfast, is Northern Ireland’s newest offering to the fish and chip industry with a very unique selling point. It focuses on seafood sustainability and traceability, including environmental issues relating to our coastline. Unlike their competitors, ‘Fish City’ already have a number of national and international accolades to their belt including professional memberships and awards.
Located next to Victoria Square opposite Pottingers Entry in Ann Street, John Lavery of Fish City stated, "we have taken a unique perspective on the industry and focus on developing what we have to offer. We are the first fish & chip shop in the United Kingdom to be invited to become a corporate member of the Marine Conservation Society."
The Marine Conservation Society is just one of the many agencies supporting Fish City stating, "MCS is delighted to receive Fish City’s support through Company Membership. We have been impressed with their commitment to serving sustainable seafood, which is so important to the health of our global fish stocks. They have been working closely with MCS and our Good Fish Guide to develop a new sustainable seafood policy, and we wish them all the very best at the new location in the heart of Belfast.” Sanjay Mitra, Corporate Partnerships Manager.
John continued, "We work hard to perfect what we deliver and are the first fish & chip shop in Northern Ireland to have received a silver in Green Tourism and Investors in People. An additional achievement, was representing our industry and country in becoming the ‘healthiest fish & chip shop’ in Northern Ireland. This fact was endorsed in 2015, as we were awarded one of the top three in the ‘UK Healthy Eating Award’, sponsored by Seafish at the National Fish and Chip Awards. No other fish & chip shop or restaurant in Northern Ireland has achieved these accolades. Our food speaks for itself.”
"We are very aware of the focus on children’s dietary requirements, and to that end we have produced a children’s menu which is innovative and a healthier option. We include a gluten free menu and an extensive range of seafood. We ensure full food traceability working with local food and drink producers whenever possible, offering customers a menu which is flavoursome and healthy.
"We are proud supporters of local, seasonal and sustainable produce. This is an amazing opportunity as we have strived to take fish & chips that one step further.”
