WELCOME TO BLEIKER’S THE SMOKEHOUSE
Home to the finest smoked fish and the leading brand of Smoked Salmon*
Founder Jürg Bleiker, has been in the food industry for nearly 40 years. Jürg served his chef apprenticeship in the world-renowned Hotel Richemont in his native Switzerland. He came to the UK to learn English and met his wife Jane. Together they ran the highly acclaimed ‘Old Deanery’ restaurant in Ripon, North Yorkshire for 21 years before founding Bleiker’s Smokehouse in 1993.
Now in our second generation, our family run smokehouse in the heart of North Yorkshire prides itself on traditionally curing and smoking the finest quality fresh produce and preparing them to the highest standards – wherever possible free from any artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives.
Bleiker’s provenance and quality is renowned. Not only have we won numerous awards from the Guild of Fine Foods Retailers but also are a choice smokehouse to some of the UK’s top celebrity chefs.
Our ethos and mission is simple, reject mediocrity and passionately strive to produce the best.
We also pride ourselves on our innovation within the smoked food sector that make our products unique in achieving exquisite and memorable flavours so desired by today’s exacting consumer.
