Renowned for its exceptional nutritional value and high production standards, Scottish salmon has been honoured with the prestigious EU PGI status, a testament to its quality and distinctive origins. Additionally, it proudly holds the esteemed French Label Rouge designation, signifying its recognition as an outstanding example of 'good food' on the international stage.
