ChalkStream - fine English Trout
Chalk Stream Foods grows the finest English Trout on the famous chalk stream rivers of Hampshire, England.
The Finest Taste from the Purest Water
ChalkStream® grows the finest English rainbow trout on the world famous Test and Itchen Rivers of Hampshire. Slow grown for 2 years in fast flowing pure chalk stream water, our trout are lean and athletic with a unique, clean taste.
ChalkStream® supplies large fresh trout to the catering industry through a network of select UK wholesalers. Outstanding hot and cold smoked trout is also available both wholesale and from our on-line shop.
“Each winter, the rain falls high on the sheep-grazed downs then seeps into the chalk seam hundreds of feet below the ground. Filtered, purified and chilled, the water emerges months later from the ground as a billion tiny springs to form such famous rivers as the Test and Itchen. It is a freak of geology. A blessing of the ice age. And the closest thing to heaven on earth for rearing trout.”
“There has been a trout revival recently, largely down to the trout-friendly chalkstreams we have in the UK, as well as the passion of producers such as ChalkStream®”
“Not only do I love trout fishing on the Test but the added bonus is that I am able to buy delicious good sized ChalkStream® trout in quantity for our menus across the restaurants. It’s wonderful.”
“Whether you’re in London needing a taste of the countryside, or eating native in the fields, one cannot feel well, nor love well, or sleep well without amazing food! and ChalkStream® trout is one of the very best ingredients you can get! Life is too short not to…..”
Oliver Gladwin - Head Chef The Shed and The Rabbit
