Salmon processor set for £3.2m expansion


ONE of the largest processors of Scottish salmon has secured £3.2 million funding from the Royal Bank of Scotland to further expand into international markets.
Lossie Seafoods, based in Buckie, and part of Associated Seafoods Ltd (ASL), has ambitious growth plans, creating 50 new jobs in the last year, with hopes of more to follow as production increases.
The company, which specialises in the sale of quality seafood including premium Scottish smoked salmon under the brand ‘Pride of Scotland’, is looking to develop its exports around the globe.
Victor West, managing director of ASL, told BQ: ‘Our goal is to produce the finest quality Scottish seafood for customers around the world, and really put Scotland and its products onto the map.
‘Lossie Seafoods was founded over 100 years ago, and we still use smoking and curing techniques developed over the generations.
‘Our extensive experience makes us stand out in the market, and our focus on quality has seen Lossie Seafoods win many awards for its produce.’
Eileen Tocher, relationship director at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: ‘Victor and the team at Lossie Seafoods supply the highest quality products possible, which is opening up opportunities for the business, both nationally and abroad.
‘The company has expanded at a rapid rate in the last few years, thanks to the team’s ambitious growth plans and their dedication.’
