Mak­ing a mark

Fish Farmer - - Processing News -

FOR­MER copy­writer Mark White has forged a unique busi­ness de­liv­er­ing pro­duce by trav­el­ling around Lon­don’s Underground.

His un­likely ven­ture started seven years ago after a restau­rant owner friend asked him to help move boxes around the mar­kets at 3am in the morn­ing.

Even­tu­ally, he be­gan vis­it­ing the mar­kets on his own after see­ing that some fish­mon­gers were sell­ing fish sold at Billings­gate for dou­ble the price.

One day he bought £20 worth of sausages from Smith­field mar­ket and sold them for £35. Now he sends out a mail­ing on Mailchimp or through so­cial me­dia and re­ceives or­ders by re­turn. These are de­liv­ered to cus­tomers via the Underground. He later re­treats to the Star & Garter pub in Soho, from where the re­main­ing cus­tomers can col­lect their or­ders.
