SCOTTISH salmon farmer Loch Duart has won the Food and Drink Company of the Year at Scottish Business Insider’s Made in Scotland Awards.
Announced at a ceremony last night at the Glasgow Science Centre, Loch Duart was chosen for its innovative approaches, which include low density farming and a focus on sustainability, environmental stewardship and fish welfare.
The award noted that Loch Duart, based in north west Scotland, has a hard won reputation for extraordinary tasting salmon, which has been achieved by building the brand among top chefs, leading hotels, restaurants and retailers in the UK and further afield.
Loch Duart managing director Alban Denton said: ‘Food and Drink Company of the Year! What an accolade! Very fitting because in our remote and beautiful part of Scotland, that’s what we do – produce a fine food which is the most delicious tasting salmon.
‘There’s a whole bunch of fine people who make this happen. Operations, technical, finance and sales. This award is for each and every one of them.’
