A little bit about us and why we do what we do…
We Are Saving Nemo
We are Saving Nemo, a 100% vegan business specialising in anything fishy! We started in 2021 with our little green van serving the people of Northamptonshire with our take on fish and chips. In 2022 we moved to the North East where the business now lives.
You can find us at festivals, markets and you can hire us for private events– check out our hire us page!

The Tartar Sauce Journey
We have always made our tartar sauce and taken it to many events, a lot of people requesting it in bulk.
We didn’t know where to start with manufacturing and it all happened by accident. During the 40-degree heatwave in 2022 we were at a market in Bletchley. Of course, everyone was out enjoying the sun and we were quiet. We started talking to the trader next door who was Sam from Origin Kitchen. Turns out they manufacture for other vegan companies and the rest is history!
Hi! I am Jess the owner of Saving Nemo. I have been vegan since 2018, vegetarian since 2005.
When I am not frying, I am usually underwater in the North Sea or travelling (and of course planning my trips around vegan food!).
My first job was at Domino’s Pizza and I guess I always enjoyed working in the food industry. I actually have a master’s in Biomedical Science and was a senior engineer for a large semi-conductor company but gave it all up for my love of Saving Nemo!
