Great value yet again! Retail pricing comparisons for March & April

Family favourites resizedOur interesting and enlightening review of supermarket pricing back in March, for Jan/Feb 2016 (see our blog Eating Fresh Nutritious Fish), showed that buying fish from an independent retailer such as Ramus is not only comparable (or sometimes cheaper) in price to the supermarkets, but it can be much better value considering the added advantages of provenance, experience & freshness.  

We are keen to continue this price transparency and have conducted a similar review for March and April.  

Using a similar formula to last time here are the averages (10th March – 15th April)
