Patrick Hughes, Head of Seafood Scotland

Patrick Hughes joins Seafood Scotland from SAC Consulting, the consulting arm of the Scotland’s Rural College, where he was the Senior Food and Drink consultant. He worked closely with food & drink businesses across Scotland to highlight best practise, identify collaborative opportunities and facilitate key learnings that would affect growth, profitability and greater commercialisation of the sector.

As part of his previous role, Patrick led the Scottish Government-funded Think Local programme followed by Connect Local, Scotland’s local food and drink marketing advisory service comprising SAC Consulting, Scotland Food and Drink, SAOS and Seafood Scotland.

Patrick graduated from The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen and has since spent just over 20 years working across the industry including a number of years in the North-East seafood sector. It is this combination of food and drink expertise, first-hand seafood knowledge and direct experience as a seafood producer that he will bring to the role as Head of Seafood Scotland.
