Chalk Stream Foods receives P&O boost

A Hampshire firm which sources, prepares and delivers the finest rainbow trout from farms on the River Itchen and the River Test is benefiting from P&O Cruises decision to work with local suppliers.

Chalk Stream Foods, which was launched just over a year ago, landed a deal to supply five tonnes of its hot smoked trout to P&O Cruises last year.

The success of this has now seen the firm provide P&O with a further 100 kilos of trout fillets and, just recently and 20 kilos of smoked butter, which is served with freshly baked bread.

Next year, P&O Cruises plans to introduce Chalk Stream Foods' non-smoked trout in the ships' Epicurean restaurants, providing a major boost to the company.

Hugo Hardman of Chalk Stream Foods said: "We are delighted to be working with P&O Cruises and providing them and their discerning guests with a unique quality product.

“We are passionate about instigating a trout revival and getting this delicious, healthy and quintessential British fish back onto menus and are thrilled that P&O Cruises feels the same."

This latest deal will provide a major boost to the whole supply chain with all of Chalk Stream’s farms across Hampshire reaping the benefits.
