Jean-Claude David founded his salting and curing business in 1973 in the Boulogne-sur-Mer port area, a historic center of French maritime activity. He credits all he knows from his mother, Marcelle David, who learned ancestral techniques for salting and smoking fish, and made sure to pass them on to her son.
Today, Établissements JC David is found in various restaurants around France and the world, because their fish are always top quality. In fact, their herring is sometimes referred to as the “Rolex of herring” in France, owing to their artisanal methods and meticulous preparations. Now, they have various labels and designations that prove that theirs are superior, passing rigid qualifications and standards.
