Seafood Scotland is a trade organisation set up by the Scottish seafood industry to market, promote and develop responsibly caught Scottish seafood in order to maximise the value of return to industry. The organisation works closely with all sectors of the Scottish seafood supply chain, from catching and processing, through to retail and foodservice, and encourages and facilitates those sectors to co-operate together.
Seafood Scotland offers an excellent range of services and support to the Scottish seafood sector, enhancing their growth and development; delivering key projects and working with key stakeholders across the wider food and drink industry.
Through the launch of Ambition 2030 the Scottish seafood sector will have to witness sizeable growth to match the objectives set out within the document and it will be a key role of the Industry Engagement Specialist to lay the appropriate foundations to meet these objectives.
