Nicholas Lynch Ltd is a family run business, that was founded by Nicholas Lynch in 1984, after he had decided to change from working on his brother John’s fishing boat, The Marita, to the processing and wholesale side of the fishing industry. Today Nicholas Lynch Ltd is run by Nicholas and Niall, who with their team, have developed a very strong wholesale business as well as two retail shops which are regarded as some of the top in the country, both winning multiple awards within the sector.
The company has always prided itself with it’s very strong focus on quality and in such everything goes through a “hand Filleting” process with no filleting machines which has led the company to be widely established as experts in quality seafood processing. In the last 10 years they have seen our staff go from 10 to 25 this year, so they really are an ever growing company and they believe it’s their quality and attention to detail and their customers that have helped them along the way.
Sustainability is a huge part of the business and as a verified member of Bord Bia Origin Green, they have succeeded to bring their customers a 95%+ offering of seafood from certified sustainable sources, for Nicholas & Niall, it's more than just a story that sounds good and something they aspire to as a company. As Nick puts it himself, "We feel like we have a personal responsibility to make sure we have fish for our own children and for future generations, so for us, sustainability plays a huge part in what we do here". Their state of the art processing premises is located in Ashbourne, Co. Meath, which offers unparalleled access to the M50 via the N2.
