James Knight of Mayfair to supply seafood to Olympic events


James Knight of Mayfair is very excited to be taking part – in our own way - in the beach volleyball and equestrian events at the London Olympics.

Those spectators lucky enough to have a hospitality ticket for some of the hottest tickets in town will be tucking into lobsters, Whitstable oysters, smoked salmon, prawns, seabass and monkfish supplied by James Knight.

“We addressed the production and logistical complications created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games some six months ago” says Managing Director, Paschal Tiernan. “All credit to our team who put a fantastic strategy into place for a very challenging set of circumstances; I am very pleased that we are still able to keep London’s restaurants and caterers stocked up with the best fish in the Capital throughout the Games.”

Paschal continues, “Supplying event caterer, Mecco, required a very tight turnaround for it’s order. The security lockdown for Horseguards Parade and Greenwich Park meant we had to deliver to Oxfordshire on time for them to dispatch on their sealed lorries back to London.”
