Harry Jesse Son & Co Ltd has a rich and storied history that spans over eight decades. What began as a modest trading endeavor in 1942 at the Wholesale Fish Market in Great Charlotte Street, Liverpool, has now evolved into a thriving enterprise that stands as a testament to the values of tradition, resilience, and innovation.
In those early days, the bustling Wholesale Fish Market was the heart of the seafood industry, and Harry Jesse’s horse-drawn deliveries from the local rail network symbolized the dedication and determination that characterized the company’s approach to business. This commitment to reliable service and quality formed the foundation upon which the company grew.
As time went on, the company transitioned to temporary premises on Prescot Road, where Stan Jesse, Harry’s son, took the reins of leadership. Over the course of 25 years, Stan’s guidance and vision not only upheld the company’s legacy but also fostered its expansion within the industry.
