Asda and Waitrose were the big winners at the Seafood Awards, sharing three key titles between them.

Asda picked up the seafood training and development award for its Drifters seafood training programme at the Seafish-organised awards last week. It also won best Seafood Fortnight campaign, for promoting the health benefits of seafood and highlighting the importance of seasonal and local species.

Waitrose, which sells over 55 species of fish and shellfish, scooped seafood multiple retailer of the year, while M&S won best new oil-rich seafood product for its raw Scottish Lochmuir salmon with soy, ginger and lime.

"The awards reflect the considerable efforts multiples put into driving innovation in the category," said Seafish head of communications James Wood.

The awards attracted 170 entries across the 14 different categories.
