Associated Seafoods a finalist at the Grampian Food Forum Innovation Awards 2015

Associated Seafoods Ltd (ASL) has been shortlisted for two awards at the forthcoming Grampian Food Forum Innovation Awards 2015.

An award winner last year with its White Crab Meat Pot and White & Brown Crab Meat Pots, the same two products have now made the shortlist in this year’s ‘Most Successful Product from the 2014 Awards’ category, thanks to their buoyant sales over the past 12 months.

ASL is also a finalist in the ‘Investing in Skills Development’ category in recognition of its English language training programme for staff for whom English is not their first language. The training is open to all staff and aids both the business and the personal development of employees.

Henry Angus, commercial director at ASL, said: “Innovation and investment are at the heart of our business and we are delighted that this has been recognised through us being shortlisted in these two categories. Following our multi-million pound investment programme in upgrading our processing facility, our strategy for growth revolves around a focus on high-end ready-to-eat seafood products.”

The Grampian Food Forum Innovation Awards will be held at Ardoe House Hotel and Spa, Aberdeen, on Thursday 19 March.
