General Manager

Cavistons has a rich history that dates back to the mid-1940s. What began as a modest fish shop has blossomed into a family-run business offering an impressive range of products spanning seafood and delicatessen items. Over the years, Cavistons has become a major supplier of quality food to many of Dublin’s leading restaurants and hotels. Their thriving export business, particularly in smoked salmon, has contributed to their continued success.
