Rebecca Forwood is the founder and sole owner of The Fishwives. She was born in Melbourne to an Australian mother and a Hong Kong Chinese father. In 1990 whilst living in Hong Kong, her mother and aunt set up a small business called The Fishwives, bringing a monthly shipment of fresh NZ King Salmon into Hong Kong.
Also passionate about good healthy food, Rebecca took over the business in 1998 and in 2000 brought it to Singapore. There was nowhere to buy good quality fresh fish or meat from Australia or New Zealand. and the 'no nasties' ethos was unexplored and mostly unavailable. Over the years whilst raising her family, Rebecca researched and explored the best fresh food available for export into Singapore that met her strong ethos of containing absolutely no additives (such as growth enhancers, antibiotics, vaccines and metals), and so the business grew with every new product.
The Fishwives has grown from a small business operated from home to a successful online and shop front food emporium complete with its very own cool truck delivering 6 days a week island wide.
