Salmon farmer Loch Duart launches online store


Independent Scottish salmon farming company Loch Duart has made its fish directly available to consumers for the first time via a new online store.

The platform, available on the producer’s website, offers eight or 12 servings of fresh salmon fillets from the Loch Duart farm sites in northwest Scotland. These are delivered to customers’ addresses within days of placing their orders.

The company’s sales manager, Chris Orr, said the move was something he had been planning for some time.

Traditionally, Loch Duart salmon was reserved for the best restaurants in the world, but in recent years we have seen a growth not only in the desire to cook at home, but also in demand for restaurant quality products. to work with,” Orr said. “We are delighted that home cooks can now easily purchase generous servings of Loch Duart fillet via our new online store. I urge all discerning foodies and home cooks to savor the unique flavor of Loch Duart and learn more about why we are so proud of the way we farm our fish. Our slow-growing salmon have room to swim and are fed a tailored diet rich in marine content, which keeps them fit and healthy and rich in omega-3s.

Employing around 140 people, Loch Duart produces around 6,000 metric tonnes (MT) of salmon each year from its farms in Sutherland and the Outer Hebrides. Its fish is supplied to hotels, restaurants and retailers in the UK and overseas markets.

Earlier this year, the company announced the launch of the first Scottish product low-carbon hybrid feed storage barge at its Oldany agricultural site. Combining battery and diesel power, it is estimated that the new barge will reduce site diesel consumption by up to 60% compared to standard diesel systems. The hybrid system was developed by ScaleAQ.
