Severn & Wye Smokery
What to buy at Better Food: Smoked salmon, farmed at Glenarm Organic Salmon Ltd.
Firmly rooted in the local landscape, but with a reputation that stretches a long way from their Forest of Dean location, Severn & Wye Smokery use traditional techniques, filleting, curing and cutting mostly by hand, and cutting their own oak chips to give their fish a distinctive flavour.
The salmon we source from Severn & Wye is farmed by Glenarm Organic Salmon. As the only salmon producer in the Irish Sea, they stand out from their Scottish counterparts not only in the exceptional quality of their salmon, but also in the unparalleled stewardship of their two off-shore organic certified farms.
Mission and values: A defining feature of Severn & Wye is their strong environmental commitment, which includes measures to reduce their carbon footprint across the business. From their careful sourcing of sustainable fish stocks, to their commitment to no waste fish, their practice is focussed on being a positive force in the local and wider environment.
Location: Westbury-on-Severn, GL14 (26.1 miles to Better Food)
We love them because… Severn & Wye care as deeply about their impact on the world as they do about the quality and flavour of their products. We loved hearing how for the five trees felled by the business in the past twenty years (used to build their smokery and for woodchip), they’ve planted 350 British deciduous trees in return.
