Shift is in line with “foodservice moving towards convenience,” says independent Scottish salmon farmer.
In a press release, the independent Scottish salmon farmer Loch Duart writes that is it now offering Label Rouge fillets. Before it was only Label Rouge whole fish.
French-born Marie MacAleese, Loch Duart’s Business Development Manager, who has been leading development of this new line, said: “The world of foodservice and retailer is moving towards convenience. Our customers across Europe can now share the amazing taste and quality of Loch Duart salmon, reared with care over three years in North West Scotland, in a fillet format.”
Last year, Loch Duart purchased its own fish processing facility for the first time in the company’s 21-year history.
It produces more than 6,000 tonnes of salmon each year, from its farms in Sutherland and the Outer Hebrides.
