Welcome to Favis, cracking crab since 1972

Hello and welcome to our website where you can discover all about us and all about the cracking crab that we love fishing for off the South Devon Coast.

We at Favis of Salcombe have been going to sea to bring back the finest, freshest crab and lobster since 1972 when Grandad Keith Favis (his nickname’s ‘The Don’) swapped trucking for crabbing and began our great family adventure.

Now three generations of Favis are working at the firm, dedicated to providing you with the very best, award-winning, hand-picked crab, bringing it from pot to plate in record time.

We are passionate about what we do, about the quality, about the sourcing, about the cooking, about the hand-picking … about everything in fact!

We export all around the world, but we supply all over the UK too – to quite a few famous restaurants, chefs and faces, and to homes and shops from Salcombe to Shetland.

Your enjoyment of nature’s finest superfood is of supreme importance to us – so we’ve even rustled up a few yummy recipes you can try at home too.

Please do get in touch and let us know how you’ve got on, you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or drop us a line at the office.

Enjoy our website and we look forward to hearing from you.

Best fishes, The Favis Family.
