About us

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.

In a pivotal move, the company eventually found its current home within the historic abattoir buildings. This relocation marked a significant milestone, underscoring the company’s adaptability and willingness to embrace change while honoring its heritage.

Today, Harry Jesse Son & Co Ltd stands as a thriving enterprise, guided by the capable hands of the third generation. Nick Jesse, Stan’s son, carries forward the family legacy with a profound understanding of the industry, amassed over 25 years of experience and knowledge passed down through the generations. Nick’s leadership reflects the harmonious blend of time-honored practices and contemporary approaches, ensuring that the company continues to thrive in an ever-evolving business landscape.

With a steadfast commitment to quality, service, and innovation, Harry Jesse Son & Co Ltd remains a shining example of how a family-owned business can not only endure but also flourish across generations. As the company continues to build upon its legacy, it does so with an eye toward the future, honoring the past while embracing the opportunities of the present.
