Scotland: Conference on prime seafood from Moray Firth Published:  22 November, 2005

THE MORAY Firth Partnership is organising a conference on prime seafood which will be held on the 25th of November at the Newton Hotel in Nairn. The conference, claimed to be a pioneering event is aimed at individuals and organisations with an interest in the development, distribution and promotion of the prime seafood produce found in the Moray Firth.

Organised by the Moray Firth Partnership, the ‘Produce to be Proud of’ conference will give delegates a mix of debate and thought-provoking ideas centred on Moray Firth produce.

The programme of talks from key industry players such as Julie Graham of the Sea Fish Industry Authority, will be complimented by a series of hands-on workshops including ‘Creating a Brand’, led by Carole Fitzgerald of the award-winning West Coast Seafood Trail. Other key note speakers include Jo Hunt of the Highlands and Islands Local Food Network, and Norman Macdonald of Café 1 in Inverness.

Designed to appeal to anyone concerned with catering, retail, tourism, health promotion (and associated public, private and voluntary organisations), fishing, marketing and distribution, the ‘Produce to be Proud of’ conference presents a unique opportunity to network with like-minded industry players keen to pave the way with Moray Firth Produce.

Mike Comerford, Chairman of the Moray Firth Partnership said: “This is an extremely important and exciting event which will be of tremendous value to anyone with a stake in Moray Firth produce. Some of the most fantastic foods in Scotland come from the Firth making ‘Produce to be Proud of’ a particularly apt theme for the conference.”
