FROM THE SEA TO YOU
For more than 40 years, Friars Pride has
supplied the finest frozen at sea (FAS) fillets.
Through our direct relationship with major trawlers, we can
source continuous supply of FAS fillets from several well
managed, established and highly sustainable fisheries where
stocks of cod and haddock are flourishing because of schemes
set out to protect fish stocks for the future.
A supporter and member of the Frozen at Sea Fillets Association
(FASFA), Friars Pride supports initiatives to promote the
sustainability and management of cod and haddock stocks from
Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Norway, Russia, and the Barents Seas.
Friars Pride is proud to be MSC certified and is regularly audited

compartments in dual compartment vehicles to ensure FAS fillets
are stored and delivered in the best possible condition.
