OUR STORY

The worlds best tasting fish and shellfish products come from the cool, clear waters on and around the Hebridean Island of Mull. It was here in the 1780’s that the British Society for Encouraging Fisheries decided to build a port upon a wonderful natural harbour among these seas of abundant fish. The name of the port was Tobermory.

Situated in the beautiful town of Tobermory, The Tobermory Fish Company was founded in 1971 by Hugh and Marjorie Goldie and is, today, an award winning, small, family-run business with a strong family and island heritage passed through three generations. For nearly 50 years the Company has been producing foods of the highest quality, using fish and shellfish from the very best local and Scottish suppliers. Hugh and Marjorie believed in a family business with a family of customers. This tradition is continued by their daughter, Rosie and granddaughter Sally both of whom who take great pride in producing outstanding foods. That commitment that customers should taste the finest fish and seafoods is maintained through the following core values.

“Our produce uses the best quality fish and seafoods available”
“Only natural ingredients are used in processing”
“To consume only sustainable resources”
“We use carefully crafted Family recipes perfected over generations”
“Our foods are hand produced artisan fayre of the highest quality”

The Tobermory Fish Company’s overall objective is to make delicious produce that instils the spirit of our amazing location by embracing the purity and beauty of the surrounding environment. Our selection of delicious Hebridean foods range from the world renowned cold smoked Tobermory Trout to hot smoked Smoked Mussels.

“You are a super example of how a caring company should operate and I shall certainly not hesitate to recommend you to friends”
