Marine Harvest celebrates awards win

Scotland's biggest salmon farmer, Marine Harvest, has been celebrating victory at this year's Highlands and Islands Business Excellence Awards.

Marine Harvest Scotland was one of two aquaculture-related winners at Friday’s awards ceremony, with seafood retailer Aquascot also triumphing.

The awards, which were presented by Deputy First Minister John Swinney, showcase organisations from across the Highlands and Islands and celebrated business excellence in a range of sectors.

Run by the Scottish Council for Development & Industry (SCDI) and supported by high profile sponsors, including SEPA, Crown Estate Scotland and Liberty British Aluminium, the rigorously-judged awards provide the opportunity for organisations to be recognised for their businesses achievements.

Export success

MH Scotland received the Benromach Award for Excellence in International Business. The company was commended for its success in exporting across the world and its plans to grow production over coming years.

Steve Bracken, Business Support Manager for MH Scotland, commented: “We are delighted to receive this award. Marine Harvest are investing heavily to support our growth to meet increasing demand – providing well paid jobs and helping to support a sustainable Scottish economy.

“I would like to thank each and every employee at Marine Harvest and our customers for supporting our success.”

Aquascot, which sells seafood, including substantial quantities of Scottish farmed salmon, received the SCDI Award for Excellence in People Development, recognising the company’s approach to learning and development in the workplace, its investment in upskilling existing employees and commitment to personal development.
