LOCH Duart won the Foodservice Product of the Year award at the Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Awards last night.
The prestigious food ‘oscar’ was presented to Simon Maguire, Loch Duart’s finance director, at the ceremony, held in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
The awards celebrate and recognise those businesses and individuals in Scotland which are leading the way with innovation, enterprise and quality.
Loch Duart’s reputation for ‘extraordinary tasting’ salmon was acknowledged in the award, which considered its focus on low density farming, sustainability, environmental stewardship and fish welfare.
On hearing of the award, managing director Alban Denton said: ‘We’re really thrilled to get this award.
‘Our staff work at sea in all weathers to bring our salmon to the market and the fine taste of them is what brings people back to eat them again and again.
‘This award is an endorsement of the quality of our salmon and its continued impact in the hotel and restaurant trade.
‘This is a boost to all the Loch Duart team and wouldn’t have been possible without their commitment and dedication towards producing the most extraordinary tasting salmon available.’
