The Duchy Smoked Fish Company Ltd

This family run business was formed in 2006 by brothers-in-law, John Ketch and Jon Vennard.

Our Smokehouse is situated on The Causeway, along the canal path in Par, Cornwall. Par lies between the Market town of St Austell and the historic harbour town of Fowey, approximately two miles from the Eden Project.

John and Jon grew up, and have lived and worked in the local area all of their lives. John Ketch was formerly Production Manager at the very successful ‘Cornish Smoked Fish Company’ at Charlestown where he worked for Mr Martin Pumphrey the proprietor/owner, until Martin retired. Jon Vennard has worked in Fowey for many years and is a local businessman and keen fisherman.

We, at The Duchy Smoked Fish Company pride ourselves in sourcing our produce locally, whenever possible, and use traditional oak curing methods to supply the finest smokehouse produce.
