30 years of Scottish Aquaculture Quality


Quality and Food safety are of the utmost importance in everything we do at SSF. In its infancy the industry adopted standards from salmon and other wild capture fisheries, as time went on we learned new and better ways to do things. Traditional harvest methods were replaced by percussive stunners, gill cutting by auto bleeders and by ’07 SSF had a unique harvesting, bleeding and chill process that delivered Freedom Foods standard welfare, industry leading bleed out and complete temperature management .


We understand very well the relationship between welfare and quality, SSF were the first to bring closed valve, live chilling, wellboat technology to Scotland. We believe in the quality and bio-security benefits this brings and monitor our fish from collection to dispatch for key stress factors which could indicate compromised quality.


SSF were the first salmon farmer to be awarded ISO 9001 for quality standards, the first farmer to be awarded full RSPCA accreditation from egg to processing, the first farmer to be awarded BRC grade A certificates.

The Future We produce a product that is healthy, nutritious and tastes great. As a result more consumers are eating salmon more often and relative to other proteins salmon remains competitively priced, we can be confident that demand for salmon will continue to grow. Our challenge will be to grow the industry in Scotland in a way that maintains the premium reputation of Scottish Salmon in current markets and expands into new markets all of which must be done in a framework of robust, sustainable farming that maintains and enhances the reputation of the industry.
