Loch Fyne Oysters (LFO) is a seafoods, fish, meat, oysters and game company which also founded the Loch Fyne restaurant chain.
LFO was the first company in the world to have their blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) certified to the ASC’s bivalve standard, which has generated considerable interest in the Argyll-based firm.
Certification was carried out by Lloyd’s Register. Cameron Brown, Managing Director at Loch Fyne Oysters, commented that he was pleasantly surprised by the comparative ease and speed of the certification process, which took place at their site in Loch Roag, off the west coast of Lewis. He also believes that – at least for some fellow mussel growers – achieving certification would be a valuable goal, not just as a possible means of achieving adding value.
