Alban Denton is the new MD of Scottish salmon supplier Loch Duart.

Denton, who joined this week, has been an MD and senior director in the poultry, vegetable and processed food industries in both England and Scotland.

He replaces Nick Joy, one of the founders of Loch Duart, who stepped down in February. “Alban has a great track record for getting the most out of the people he works with,” said chairman Dr Andrew Barbour.
