Scotland’s newest salmon start-up shared their very first harvest with Buckingham Palace on Friday 4 June.
Skye-based Organic Sea Harvest (OSH) had their first-ever harvest on Wednesday 2 June. The fish were then transported to Dingwall for processing before being dispatched to wholesale partner and Royal Warrant Holders, Severn and Wye Smokery.
Severn and Wye Smokery were responsible for making the delivery to the Royal Household at Buckingham Palace. They were advised that one fillet would be cooked there, while the other fillet would be sent to Prince Charles’ chef at Clarence House.
