Ministerial visit heralds Galloway seafood gains

A warm welcome was extended to Scottish Cabinet Secretary, Richard Lochhead when he visited Sco-Fro Group’s Newton Stewart seafood factory recently. Lochhead visited the Galloway Seafoods Dumfriesshire factory last week to see the benefits of a £4m investment in the plant which was assisted by European Fisheries Funding and facilitated by the Scottish Government.

Improvements to the factory have resulted in a four-fold increase in manufacturing capacity and the construction of a new cold store. The increased capability at Galloway Seafoods has lead to major business wins in both the retail and foodservice sectors for coated seafood products.
