Loch Fyne Oysters has been awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise in recognition of its achievements in international trade.
Over the past three years the company has recorded exceptional overseas growth, achieving exports in excess of £3.8m in 2013 to Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and the Americas while contributing to the growing reputation of Scotland's larder.
Simon Biggs, sales director of Loch Fyne Oysters, said: "Winning the Queen's Award is a pinnacle achievement for the company and a personal highlight of the 15 years I have been working at Loch Fyne. I have just returned from Asia's biggest food and hotel trade event in Singapore where the strength of our brand in the Far East has never been clearer.
"The award is an acknowledgment of the effort put in by everyone at Loch Fyne Oysters to ensure the best possible product and service is supplied to our customers all over the world."
This is the second time Loch Fyne has won the award, previously awarded 1994 when founder Johnny Noble first visited Hong Kong in the early 1980's and recruited Loch Fyne's first export partners, Elite Foods, with whom the company is still working closely today.
