Salcombe Finest are dedicated to providing the best and tastiest locally caught crab, brought in daily by local fishermen to the Fish Quay in Salcombe Harbour.
Unlike many other crab producers, Salcombe Finest picks 100% of their crab meat by hand by a local team of skilled pickers, meaning you get a far tastier end product, which is supplied fresh to your door within 24 hours of leaving the sea.
But you may wonder why you can’t order your crab today and get it tomorrow. The main reason is that the crabs don’t just walk in to the office! Salcombe Finest want to make sure that your crab is a fresh as possible.
When they receive your order, the next day the fisherman will head out to sea and catch some brown crabs for your order (unless it is very stormy in which case they put the kettle on to wait out.)
The following day, the crab is landed (brought to the harbour walls), cooked, picked and packed. Your crab is vacuum packed and your parcel of joy is packed with ice gel packs to keep cool in transit. The courier picks the parcel up from Fisherman’s Quay and drives all night to get the crab to you the very next morning.
And all this is done for the love of crab meat! Phew!
Salcombe Finest also supply delicious Bigbury Bay oysters and Devon scallops, again delivered freshly to your door as soon as possible, to ensure you get the freshest possible seafood to enjoy.
