07 April 2014 - Keeping Costs
Facing ever increasing postage, packing
and storage costs but not wanting to put our prices up we have decided
to simplify the way that we do business and are now only able to provide
fresh smoked trout to order, with a leadtime of up to 3 weeks depending
on where in our production cycle we are. We realise that this makes
'on the spot' orders almost impossible to fulfil and apologise for this,
but as a small business it is the only practical way to keep costs down
outside of Christmas which is of course our busiest time.
14th November 2013 - We are taking
orders for Christmas!
This year we are concentrating on two
products: our flagship cold smoked trout which comes pre-sliced in 200g
packets and our smoke roasted large trout fillets also in 200g packets.
Both cold smoked and smoke roasted are £10 per 200g packet,
with a minimum order of £20. To guarantee delivery before Christmas
please place your order by Friday 6th December.
16th March 2013 - We are on sale
in delis in Edinburgh, London, Sussex and Oxfordshire.
Great news for all smoked trout lovers,
we are now on sale at Herbies
in Edinburgh, BonBon
in London, Cowdray
Farm Shop in Sussex and Chadlington
Quality Foods in Oxfordshire.
3rd January 2013 - We have hit
LIKES on our Facebook page !
As a wonderful start to the New Year we
have hit 100 likes on our facebook page. Everyone who likes us is very
special to us but it was Alexandra Harrison who was the lucky 100th
liker and as such will be receiving her free packet of smoked trout
later this week.
21st December - We increased our
Christmas orders by over 50% compared to 2012!
Thank you to all our wonderful customers
for placing so many Christmas orders. With just Shara doing the packing
and posting it was quite a challenge but we loved every moment of it.
And if you were one of the lucky people
to be enjoying Moffat Water Foods smoked trout on Christmas day then
we'd love to hear about it, and maybe even see the odd photo or two.
Our new packaging is finalised!
After a few months of tweaking and
fine-tuning we are delighted to announce that our new cardboard
sleeves are going to print and will be ready in time for Christmas
sales and orders starting from the third week of November.
The other exciting news is that Shara is
now committed full-time to Moffat Water Foods - with a new website, new
online ordering and lots more in the pipeline.
Rainbow Trout! -
Saturday 8th September 2012
Despite the road closures we had a great
day with locals enjoying rainbow trout prepared and smoked in different
ways plus an exclusive tour of the farm. Monty was on hand with innovative
ideas for new recipes and Shara learnt a new filleting trick to avoid
needing to pin-pone, so a great day all round!

Sustainable fish sales surge in the UK
Sales of alternative and more sustainable species of fish have risen sharply
over the past year, UK supermarkets reported on Wednesday. Following a
year of high-profile awareness campaigns to encourage take-up of sustainable
fish, Sainsbury's has seen a surge of as much as 117% in sales of lesser-known
fish species across the UK this year compared to 2011. It says sales of
sea bass are up by 57%, fresh pollack by 15%, trout by 29% and tilapia
by a significant 117%.
