Potted crab from Associated Seafoods short-listed for prestigious Grampian Food Forum Award
A range of three high quality crab products developed by Associated Seafoods Ltd (ASL) have been selected as a finalist in the forthcoming Grampian Food Forum Innovation Awards 2014.
White Crab Meat Pot (100g), White & Brown Crab Meat Pot (100g), and Dressed Crab (130g) have been short-listed in the Best New Retail Product category for businesses with more than 25 employees.
ASL recently successfully completed a major investment programme at its facility in Buckie, Scotland, creating an ultra-modern processing plant for Scottish shellfish and Scottish smoked salmon. A significant element of the new development plans for the business includes the diversification into high-end retail products such as those that have been short-listed for the Grampian Food Forum Innovation Awards.
Victor West, managing director for ASL, said: “We are delighted to have been nominated as a finalist for these prestigious awards. Scottish crab is a wonderful tasting shellfish and being short-listed is confirmation that we have developed range of potted and dressed crab products with strong consumer appeal.”
The Grampian Food Forum Innovation Awards will be held at the Marcliffe Hotel, Aberdeen, on Thursday 20 March.
