HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall sampled smoked salmon from Organic Sea Harvest on their visit to meet local businesses on Skye.
The royal couple, accompanied by Lord-Lieutenant Joanie Whiteford, were visiting businesses in Portree, Skye. They met with OSH’s co-founders, Alister Mackinnon and Alex MacInnes, and Chief Operating Officer, Robert Wyvill.
Earlier this year, OSH carried out its first commercial harvest and delivered a fillet of organic smoked salmon to Clarence House, residence of the Prince of Wales.
HRH Prince Charles, whose title in Scotland is the Duke of Rothesay, is a longstanding supporter of the organic movement and owns a farm in England run entirely on organic lines.
Alex McInnes said: “It was an honour to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay to Skye. I was delighted to share with them our carefully-produced, organic salmon. We are proud of our product and were thrilled to present it to the Duke, given his long-term devotion to organic farming methods.
“The Duke asked about our salmon farming methods, including our stocking density and how we handle sea lice. It was a pleasure to talk to someone so knowledgeable and interested in our mission to create top-quality, organic salmon. He was very positive and commented on our sustainability.”
