Until 1969 George Anderson Flannigan worked in company sales from John O’ Groats to Lands End, staying in bed & breakfasts and hotels along the way.
Every so often he would come across the same old story from the landlady or the hotel chefs; “Where can we buy good quality shellfish, as so often we are unable to get it around here.” Seeing an opportunity in the making, and being the adventurous type, George began to formulate his ideas. He creatively sketched out methods of transportation, packaging and was continously on the move, generating interest and spreading the word that he was now able to provide such a service. He took the plunge and in deciding to form the Berwick Shellfish Company the seeds were sown.
