Originally established in Manchester in 1862, J. Sykes & Sons has progressed towards becoming one of the UK’s leading independent fresh and frozen seafood suppliers. We have developed our expertise in supplying mixed-pallet to multiple-pallet quantities of frozen seafood to foodservice groups, wholesalers, retailers, processors and fish merchants. The knowledge we have acquired over the years has helped us put emphasis on customer service and the high quality of our products. The quality is reflected in our three brands, Arctic Royal, Clear Seas and Glenmyr.
We offer a daily national delivery service, with cold store picking and dispatch from our Manchester premises. Our ISO9001 accreditation means that you can be assured that the highest quality seafood is delivered to you in the best condition, on a day that suits you. All our facilities have a minimum of BRC AA grade and we strictly adhere to IUU Fish EU regulations and can proudly display the blue MSC eco-label. This progress over the last 80 years, from the days of deliveries by horse and cart, is phenomenal, yet the principles of speed and efficiency have not changed much (we had some very fast horses!).
