We take Pride in producing the best quality Scottish Salmon with the trademark of Provenance Guaranteed. We produce the finest sea loch fresh salmon by;
ensuring our fish gets the best quality feed
committing to the highest standards of animal husbandry
engaging in all stages of the value chain, ensuring full traceability and
making sure that we are recognised by international accreditations.
Quality, Food Safety and Traceability
We are engaged in all stages of the value chain, ensuring full traceability and total supply chain integrity.
We hold national and international accreditations and certifications across the value chain, including GLOBALG.A.P., the worldwide standard for Good Aquaculture Practice. We were the first salmon producer in the UK to be awarded 3-star Best Aquaculture Practice (BAP) certification for all our marine and processing sites, as well as our feed suppliers. This is considered to be the world’s most trusted and comprehensive third-party aquaculture certification and is the only certification to cover the entire aquaculture production chain, from hatcheries to farms and processing plants. Our processing facilities have been awarded the highest level of British Retail Consortium (BRC) Accreditation for food safety, processing and supply chain management.
We are dedicated to producing the finest quality Scottish salmon and fundamental to this is the quality of the feed to ensure healthy growth. Our dedicated team of nutritionists ensure that we only source fully traceable raw materials. Our Scottish salmon are fed on a bespoke diet higher in marine content than average, ensuring they are naturally rich in Omega 3. We are committed to sourcing high specification feed, from speciality feed suppliers accredited to assurance schemes such as Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), GLOBALG.A.P. and BAP. We require all of our feed suppliers to source marine ingredients from fisheries and producers certified by the International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organisation (IFFO), under their Responsible Supply Scheme.
Health and Welfare
Fish health and welfare and the natural environment are intrinsically linked and are fundamental to responsible salmon farming. We are committed to the highest standards of animal husbandry in all our operations, adhering to the independently audited Code of Good Practice for Scottish Finfish Aquaculture, which covers all aspects of farm production. We have a team of highly motivated and professional veterinarians and biologists who take the welfare of the stock under their care extremely seriously. We are focussed on reducing the use of chemical and medical treatments: we have not used antibiotics in marine for 7 years. In 2018, we invested over £6m to manage health challenges by using sustainable new treatment technologies and expanding our cleaner fish programme.
Quality Assurance & Accreditations
Salmon is an important source of Omega 3 and Vitamin D but not all salmon have equal nutritional benefits. Our salmon are fed a higher Fish Meal and Fish Oil content diet than farmed salmon from Norway, Canada or Chile. On average our salmon enjoy a higher marine content diet than other farmed Scottish salmon and all ingredients in our feed are sustainably sourced, fully traceable and IFFO-RS* certified. In fact just one 175g fresh SSC fillet provides 120% of the EU’s recommended weekly intake of Omega 3. Delicious and nutritious.
