Loch Fyne Oysters, famous in retail outlets and restaurants world over for its smoked salmon and oysters, is up for sale. A source close to the company informed The Grocer that such a move had been mooted long before LFO's public persona and chairman Johnny Noble died earlier this year.
"This is not an urgent sale, rather a move to find the right hands to pass it on to, at the right price" he said. "It is intended that the oyster and mussel farms, smoked salmon processing unit and restaurant at Cairndow will continue with the same vision and the same sustainable ethos."
The company is the UK's largest supplier of oysters, while its smoked salmon has a loyal following in retail and foodservice outlets.
