Tregida Win Gold for Great Taste

19th November 2021

Its more awards for Shop Cornish Members this month with the nationally renowned Tregida Smoke House winning yet another Taste of the West Awards for their traditionally smoked whole Kippers.

A popular favourite for breakfast these Kippers are smoked the traditional way with no artificial colours or flavouring. Tregida recommend cooking until crispy either under the grill or in the oven, serve with bread and butter, and with that colouration who could resist!

Tregida Ltd is run by Coralie and Jon Short, a husband and wife team.  Jon and Coralie met at University where Jon was studying for a Degree in Agriculture and Coralie for a Business Degree. After University they decided to set up a smokery on Coralie’s parents land in Trelash on the North Cornwall coast, with Coralie’s brother Yan. Jon and Coralie built the first smoker by hand and started producing traditionally smoked products including Salmon and Mackerel in 2000. 

The Smokehouse started getting notoriety, especially when Jon appeared with Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall on River Cottage. The smokehouse has gone from strength to strength, winning award after award for their artisan smoked products.  They finally said goodbye to their homemade smoker which could no longer cope with demand and purchased a Ness smoker with a much larger capacity. Coralie and Jon have recently installed a wind turbine at the Smokehouse which now provides nearly all of the power needed to run the giant smokers and all the other electrical equipment.

You can meet the team and see there full range and take some home from the Fowey Christmas Market on 26th, 27th & 28th November or go straight to the Tregida website and order some for your breakfast!
