The Sutherland-based fish farmer has already won the Foodservice Product of the Year prize at the prestigious Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards 2017 in May, and was named Food and Drink Company of the Year at Scottish Business Insider’s Made in Scotland Awards in April.

And it has now been named as a finalist in the Exporter of the Year category of the Food and Drink Federation’s 2017 awards, a UK-wide competition.

Loch Duart is also a finalist in the export category of the Highland and Islands Food and Drink Awards 2017.


The company will find out if it has won Food and Drink Federation silverware at an awards dinner in London on September 21, while the Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards will be held on Friday, October 20 at the Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness.

After Loch Duart won the Foodservice Product of the Year prize in May, 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.”
