Everyone has played their part in gaining this award. Now that we have been successful in acquiring SALSA accreditation we hope to create a greater awareness of a range of Isle of Man Queen Scallops products throughout the UK that will hopefully benefit the industry in the Isle of Man as a whole.
Eleanor Nicholls auditor from Salsa added, “This was a superb first time audit and a real credit to the staff of Island Shellfish.”
