• Welcome to James Baxter & Sons

    Home of the famous Potted Shrimps


    At James Baxter & Sons we have been producing Morecambe Bay potted shrimps since 1880 and we are extremely proud to be the oldest and most traditional such company in the country

    We pride ourselves on quality and our potted shrimps have achieved the highest accolade with the granting of the Royal Warrant in 1967 which we retain to this day based on a totally unique recipe which has been handed down through the family for seven generations.

    Whilst our main product is potted shrimps we also specialise in supplying smoked salmon, quality game (when in season), and a quality frozen fish range

    Potted Shrimp is a strongly recommended protein source. Potted Shrimps are huge in their appeal as these deliciously tasting crustaceans can be served hot or cold. People have been enjoying potted shrimp as a healthy food since the crustacean appeared in the waters, basically since time began.
