Seafood Scotland is continuing its work to secure a frictionless transport route for Scottish seafood into Europe post-Brexit with an organised visit from Port of Boulogne sur Mer (BSM) representatives.

The trip, which included logistic specialists, seafood buyers and the economic development team of BSM, is the third in a series of visits, led by the industry body, between Scottish seafood companies and the port to deliver a solution to the transport challenges the sector faces following the UK’s exit from the EU.

A spokesperson for Seafood Scotland said, “Despite ongoing uncertainty around Brexit, work must continue to ensure the seafood sectors future. This visit by BSM, and previous visits to Boulogne sur Mer demonstrates the willingness other countries have to work in partnership with Scotland to facilitate transport of Scottish seafood to Europe.”

The five-strong delegation from Select Opale, Stef Transport Boulogne, Transport by Delanchy and Capecure Boulogne sur Mer Port was given a tour of Peterhead fish market before attending a round-table event to discuss the issues facing the sector in the event of a no-deal Brexit and the support BSM officials can provide. The delegates then travelled south to DFDS in Larkhall before ending the day at an evening reception at the French Consul General Residence in Edinburgh.

Jean-Noel Calon from Capecure Boulogne sur Mer, who was part of the delegation, said: “Working with Scotland is a top priority for Boulogne Seafood Cluster which is the main gateway to EU markets for UK products.”
