Fish Story

Many people tell us they remember their grandparents buying them lolly fish on their visits to the Central Market, but that they remember them as being thinner! 

Well, they are absolutely correct.  Our fish were originally hand cranked through a die, making the process very time-consuming and labour intensive.  With the introduction of new machinery in the 1950’s, Mr. Blackeby had a special die made in England, with the result of faster production, but fatter fish!

That same die and machinery are still used today to make fish in 8 different tropical colours and flavours, and fish remain our most popular high boiled line sold in the Market.
