Scottish highlands Keltic Seafare win Royal recognition

Keltic Seafare, based in Dingwall in the Highlands of Scotland has been awarded the Queen's award to Industry for International trade today.

On the back of strong relationships with restaurants and hotels in the UK, the company has built new alliances with chefs overseas following a strategic plan six years ago to employ new staff with language skills and knowledge of the French and Spanish markets.

The Queen's award press office statements states: "Keltic Seafare supply premium quality Scottish shellfish. Operating in a niche market, export sales have increased by 1,633% over the past six years.

"This is a very customer-focused business in which both company and product reputation are essential. France and Spain were identified as it's most promising markets and personal introductions led to placing its products with prestigious restaurants in both countries.

Keltic customers include Michelin-stared restaurants and luxury hotels such as the Ritz and the Dorchester in London and Le Meurice in Paris.
