Brakes’ fish and seafood category manager, Charlotte Howkins and senior category manager, Sarah Phillips said in a joint statement: “Combining M&J’s seafood expertise and Brakes’ foodservice knowledge gives customers access to a unique foodservice fish proposition.

“We know that customers want seafood products that meet sustainable, assured standards, particularly with growing consumer concerns over the environment.  That’s why most of our seafood range now comes with certification (either MSC, MCS or ACS), with more than half produced to MSC standards.

They added: “We want customers to be confident that when they serve up any fish dish, they do so reassured that it is sourced sustainably and responsibly. Something that we know resonates with consumers.”
