J K Thomson has come a long way since its humble beginnings over 50 years ago, down by the harbour in the small fishing village of Port Seton.
 
Nestled in the coastline that surrounds the beautiful county of East Lothian, Port Seton was once a thriving fishing port where dozens of vessels daily harvested an abundance of beautifully fresh fish and shellfish. Many of the local fishmongers became recipients of such catches, J K Thomson being one of them.
 
James King Thomson himself soon realised the great potential there was to the small business his father had established and over the years channelled his efforts into developing his customer base and product range. For many years his daily routine involved a 4am start and a trip into Newhaven market in Edinburgh to sell his produce to the many local merchants. After a full day of filleting in the "fish shed", he would make the 1 hour drive, 40 miles down the coast to the larger port of Eyemouth, just in time for the evening auction of the catch freshly landed off the trawlers that afternoon.
