OUR RESPONSIBILITY

Finding New Ways to Reduce Waste

Our production process is specifically designed to reduce waste where possible, but we acknowledge that small amounts of wastage exist.

Completely eliminating disposal of waste to landfill and reducing wastage of food to an absolute minimum is an ambition of ours, and we are on our way to achieving that - recently, we have made a number of positive steps.

Reducing Food Waste

Reducing Food Waste

Our processing facility finds a use for every single part of the fish – from the head to the tail, and everything in between – and any cuts of Scottish salmon and trout that are not to be sent to retail are donated to community groups to help feed those who need it.

Zero Waste to Landfill

Zero Waste to Landfill

We recycle everything that can be, on-site, and aim to be sending no waste to landfill by the end of 2020. Using recyclables and re-usables where possible and reducing other materials to the absolute minimum, we are on track to achieve this goal.

War on Plastic

War on Plastic

We re-use plastic materials where possible, and try to minimise the amount we have to use – introducing re-usable aprons and earplugs with less plastic, alongside recyclable boxes for transporting fish and reducing the plastic used in pre-packed trays.

HITTING MILESTONES

Our Journey to Carbon Neutral

As part of our ongoing commitment to responsible processing and overall operation as a business, we aim to become a carbon neutral business by the year 2030, and all of our sustainability initiatives are directed towards this goal.

Our first major milestone will be achieving Zero Waste to Landfill by the end of 2020, and in the future we hope to mark more progress as we move towards a greener, cleaner Aquascot.
