For Your Waitstaff

Although Salmon is incredibly popular, customers may have questions about farming practices.  We’re happy to work with you and your staff to help you understand why we purchase farmed Scottish Salmon from particular companies that focus on using the most advanced, ecologically sensitive practices.  Where farms are located, ingredients in feed, controlling escapes – all of these issues and others are carefully addressed.   If customers have questions about the coloring of farmed Salmon, you can let them know it comes from natural additives in the feed made from the same organisms salmon eat in the wild.
