    The traditional smokehouse in Grimsby, with its distinctive tall chimneys, is over 100 years old and continues to produce the highest quality smoked fish, all sourced from sustainable fisheries. They acquired a PGI (Protected Geographic Indication) several years ago for their traditional smoked haddock, which is the same protected status afforded to Champagne, Parma Ham, Cornish Clotted cream and reflects the unique method of production at Alfred Enderby.
