Celebrating Scottish Salmon

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

We were delighted last week to join 100 delegates from the Scottish salmon industry to celebrate the 25th anniversary of farmed Scottish salmon being awarded ‘Label Rouge’ status by the French government.

When this happened, way back in 1992, salmon was the very first fish and the first non-French product ever to be awarded Label Rouge, which is a prestigious accolade that indicates superior taste and quality.

Invited to the Label Rouge

At the event, everyone – be they farmers or processors – was very passionate about farmed salmon and there were some great discussions about the industry, past, present and future. The day’s meeting was followed by an evening event at Edinburgh Castle, when of course we all enjoyed some fine Scottish salmon!

Read more about the event here.“A memorable event and a chance for us to meet colleagues old and new. As well as thinking about the future, it was great to reflect on the excellent progress of the Scottish salmon industry, which we were reminded has now been running for nearly 50 years.” Andrew Coulbeck, managing director
