UK Government Community Relief Fund Success

November 22, 2021

The Seafood Grimsby & Humber Alliance and Grimsby Fish Merchants Association organisations have collaborated with The University of Lincoln Campus, The National Centre of Food Manufacturing, on the opportunity to secure funding for primarily, but not exclusively, the members of both organisations.

Cluster Director, Simon Dwyer, said “Our seafood processing cluster is the largest in Europe. The levelling up government funding will help the businesses throughout our cluster remain competitive, innovative and improve energy efficiencies, such as carbon targets. They will also receive first class business growth advice and vitally, funded grants to purchase equipment towards these objectives”.

The impact of the funding will be felt by large businesses and the supply chain through to SME's and the famous independent mobile fishmongers that travel the length and breadth of England each week selling fish and seafood #MadeGreatInGrimsby
