Seafood providers hon­oured by Bord Ias­caigh Mhara food chiefs

Bray People - - About Greystones -

THANK­FULLY one can still get a nice bit of fish for din­ner in north Wick­low. The Hun­gry Monk in Grey­stones, A. Cav­is­ton’s two premises in Grey­stones and Su­perquinn in Bray were amongst those re­cently awarded mem­ber­ship of the pres­ti­gious Bord Ias­caigh Mhara Seafood Cir­cle pro­gramme.

BIM is the Ir­ish Sea Fisheries Board and their Seafood Cir­cle pro­gramme recog­nises and awards the high­est stan­dards of seafood and ser­vice.

The pro­gramme aims to as­sist the re­tail and food ser­vice sec­tors to achieve ex­cel­lent stan­dards in the pro­vi­sion of seafood. They en­cour­age the use of lo­cally sourced, re­spon­si­bly fished, qual­ity seafood.

There were 23 new mem­bers this year, bring­ing the to­tal num- ber of restau­rants, pubs and seafood re­tail­ers to 155 across Ire­land.

The Grey­stones and Bray spots can now proudly dis­play their well de­served 2009 Seafood Cir­cle plaques for all to see.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing tasty recipes, fish prepa­ra­tion and buy­ing tips and more are avail­able on www.seafood­cir­cle.ie.

Food writer Ge­orgina Camp­bell helps se­lect mem­bers for the cov­eted hos­pi­tal­ity cat­e­gory, and cus­tomers are in­creas­ingly looking for the Seafood Cir­cle logo when shop­ping or eat­ing out.

Ap­pli­cants for the re­tail cat­e­gory re­ceive at least two unan­nounced vis­its dur­ing the year so fish­mon­gers are kept on their toes as mem­ber­ship can be re­voked at any stage.
