Loch Duart to extend protection of its award winning salmon into France.

Forensic analysis ensure salmon farmer can verify traceability of its fish for French supply chain.

Loch Duart announces that it is making significant further investment to ensure the traceability of its world-renowned salmon as it takes the food fraud fight to France. The North West Scotland based salmon farming business has been working in the UK with scientific traceability experts, Oritain, for four years, deploying their pioneering ability to trace fresh salmon samples back to the individual farm and waters where the fish were raised. Now Loch Duart is to expand its use of Oritain’s scientific traceability to ensure that when consumers  and diners in France are promised genuine Loch Duart salmon, that’s what they are served.


Loch Duart has been raising its award-winning salmon in the same, low-impact, environmentally sensitive way for decades. Their low-energy sites in sheltered  locations, facilitate natural approaches including the successful use of cleaner fish and minimal fish handling. They also have bespoke, high-marine content fish feed, unique to Loch Duart, that helps to give their salmon its sought-after taste and texture.
