Dedication and Innovation
Conway’s is a Western Suburbs institution supplying quality seafood for over 50 years.
Conway’s have always been recognised innovators and leaders in wholesale and retail seafood markets. Those who buy seafood from Conway’s in Footscray know the name is synonymous with excellence.
Way back in 1928, Uncle Nick arrived to Melbourne from a tiny little village Agiasma located in north western Greece. Typical of many migrants, young Nick together with his Irish sweetheart Eileen worked very hard and eventually opened up two seafood stores in the Caulfield area. Nick’s nephew Con, joined his uncle in 1954 and through hard work and dedication bought one of the seafood stores off Uncle Nick. Ever since, Con has been involved in the Victorian seafood industry in some capacity or other throughout the years.
In 1969, Con Goulas started Conway Fish Trading in Footscray and provided fresh seafood to businesses near and far. Nearly 50 years later, the same fresh seafood is available to the public through Conway’s Wingfield Street store. Thinking ahead, Con’s son Dimitrios added two large fryers to the store and voila Hot Fish was created and now is a popular destination for “new” fashion fish and chips fans, using Hi Oleic Canola oil for frying and Extra Virgin olive oil in salads .
