Industry Database

Independent salmon farming business Loch Duart has signed a three-year salmon feed deal with aqua feed supplier EWOS.

The deal is a renewal of an existing contract which supports Loch Duart’s aim of providing a high marine content diet that mimics the natural one of wild salmon as closely as possible.

Alban Denton, managing director of Loch Duart, said: “Two key parts of our success are great taste and our commitment to sustainability. High quality feed from sustainable sources is ‘a given’. We seek so much more from our partners and EWOS are providing that.”

Rural support

Both companies are committed to supporting the rural locations of the Hebrides and Sutherland, Scotland, in which Loch Duart works. EWOS will contribute a substantial sum, based on the amount of fish food purchased, to a fund that goes directly towards supporting these communities.

Mr Denton added: “The search for better, innovative farming is in our DNA and our feed company’s expertise is vital on this journey. In addition, it’s fantastic that EWOS is donating a significant sum to a new, jointly administered fund for projects in our local communities.”

David Morrice, country director of EWOS/Cargill Aqua Nutrition, based in West Lothian, Scotland, said: “Over the years, the supply of salmon feed to Loch Duart has brought a range of good things to this plant and this company. Loch Duart’s demands for sustainable, healthy ingredients and the sharing of that transparency with their customers has brought us and the feed industry forward significantly.”
