Island Seafare has been operating in the Isle of Man since 1991.
Island Seafare was established in 1991 by Tim Croft who was previously a fishermen and scallop processor on the Isle of Man. The aim was to grow the reputation of the Isle of Man into a world renowned supplier of King Scallops.
The business expanded from King Scallops and new markets were established for Isle of Man Queen Scallops (Queenies), now world famous. As Island Seafare's reputation grew for the supply of scallops new markets and relationships were forged with Island Seafare working closely with many retailers in France as well as wholesalers across France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Over the years the business has grown and now sources and supplies produce not only from the Isle of Man, but all over the British Isles.
Now with many years of experience Island Seafare is one of the leading suppliers and exporters of live, fresh and frozen shellfish and seafood partnering with many suppliers to deliver all over the UK and Europe in various different formats to suit customer requirements.
Our head office is based in Port St Mary in the Isle of Man situated on the quayside and ideally positioned to oversea the catches being landed each day by the local boats. The head office acts currently employs three full time staff and one part time who are busy sourcing products, co-ordinating sales activity and logistics.
In 2021 Island Seafare as part of its Brexit solution opened SAS Island Seafare France with its office in Boulogne Sur Mer. This is the main sales hub for France and where much of the live and fresh export and logistic documents are prepared and currently employs two staff. SAS Island Seafare France is based in Boulogne Sur Mer perfectly positioned in the busy seafood port hub.
