SSPO seeks new chairperson

The SSPO is now reverting to having an independent Chair. We look forward to recruiting someone who will relish the role of representing one of Scotland’s most successful and dynamic food sectors.”

About SSPO

Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) is at the centre of Scottish salmon farming’s industry-wide initiatives and public communication, acting as a trusted source of information and a strong industry voice. The organisation plays a central role in representing its members on political, regulatory, media and technical issues in Scotland, the UK, EU and internationally.

Salmon farming is a major contributor to the Scottish local and national economies. Farmed salmon is a key part of Scotland’s world-renowned food industry, accounting for around 40% by value of Scottish food exports. It represents a huge Scottish success story, an outstanding example of a ‘good food’, both in terms of its exceptional nutritional value and its standards of production. It has been awarded EU PGI status, marking its quality and distinctive origins, and it was one of the earliest international food products to be awarded the coveted French Label Rouge designation.
