Six new supply chain businesses have joined the trade body for Scotland’s farm-raised salmon, Salmon Scotland.
The firms cover a geographical spread from Dumfriesshire to Shetland, and across the central belt from Broxburn to Cumbernauld, as Salmon Scotland continues its expansion.
A total of 41 companies are now members of the trade body, which promotes the success of the sector that contributes £760million-a-year to Scotland’s economy.
“Our continued expansion shows just how vital the success of farm-raised salmon is to our economy,” Tavish Scott, chief executive of Salmon Scotland, said.
“While our producers in coastal communities are at the heart of our sector, the supply chain extends well beyond this – to cities and towns across Scotland and beyond.”
