Hobsons launched in December 1971, and was bought out from founder Bill Hobson - a former chair of the Grimsby Fish Merchants’ Association - by Withernsea-based GWS Seafoods with partner Croft Holdings in 2020. The new team brought the crustacean knowledge to the traditional white fish business on the North Quay. Director Samantha Stork said: “We have had a transformative year despite the pandemic with continual growth and development. “This has allowed Hobsons to grow and open new markets with the new shellfish processing department now on-site alongside the original processing facilities.” Get business news direct to your inbox There's no better time to stay up to date with economic and business news from your region.

Samantha added: “I’d like to thank all our customers and colleagues who have supported Hobsons over the years. 50 years is a huge milestone for the company, and we are delighted to be celebrating this month. “The next few years are set to be both exciting and innovative for the business, driving the shellfish processing services Hobsons has to offer, whilst helping the local community by creating more full-time permanent jobs here in Grimsby. “Here’s to another 50 years of success!” Read More
