We serve a diverse customer base, from chefs buying for high quality restaurants and food outlets, to traditional cooks serving first-class fish and chips.
With the early hours, the highest levels of performance demanded across all areas, and a programme of ongoing training and development, John Vallance’s workforce has always demonstrated above-and-beyond levels of dedication and expertise.
Each member of staff contributes to the day-to-day operations, from preparation - all filleting, scaling, boning, portioning, and skinning is done on site, to order, and by hand - to storage and packaging, administration and sales. This vital skills mix, plus a progressive culture and respect for our long-term business relationships, ensures that all our clients and suppliers receive the best possible attention to detail, service and quality standards.
As the oldest owner-operated wholesale company in Scotland, John Vallance has had 130 years to forge successful relationships with both customers and suppliers. Our wide-ranging network of connections throughout the Scottish Seafood industry enables us to offer a unique catalogue of the freshest seafood our shores have to offer, both fished and farmed.
A strong combination of dedicated, experienced and skilled workforce, plus outstanding product quality, ensures all our customers get the best service possible in sourcing the widest selection of the freshest seafood for their menus.
All product is fully traceable to an ecologically approved sustainable source, with each order being individually prepared and processed. The personal touch alongside bespoke orders and environmentally friendly sources creates a service that inspires trust and confidence in our product, sustainability and service.
All orders are delivered and despatched in refrigerated vans; between arrival and departure, preparation and processing all takes place on our temperature controlled premises. John Vallance is a leader in the field of food safety, operating with an EU approval number in premises which have SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) accreditation. SALSA is a food-safety standard written by experienced experts, incorporating the legal requirements of producers, and the enhanced 'best practice' expectations of professional food buyers.
SALSA certification is only granted to suppliers who demonstrate that they produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting SALSA standard requirements. SALSA accreditation is proof for our customers that we provide quality seafood in a safe environment, supported by full traceability.
