"Sustainability seeks to provide the best of all possible worlds for people and the environment both now and into the indefinite future. Sustainability impacts on every level, from the local neighbourhood to the entire planet."
At Loch Fyne Restaurants we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of environmental initiatives.
We see our role as not only delivering seafood of impeccable quality but also honouring and preserving the environment from which this resource has arrived.
We work closely with several leading marine and environmental bodies, such as the Marine Conservation Society, to ensure that we have the very latest information on fish stocks.
We have been the first to take a number of important initiatives that have now filtered into the mainstream – removing endangered species such as skate and swordfish from our menus way back in 2001, for example, something the supermarkets took another six years to implement.
We work hard to remain true to our roots.
Our oysters, mussels and langoustines continue to come fresh from Loch Fyne where our sister company, Loch Fyne Oysters, is actively committed to supporting and protecting the loch, its ecology and coastal communities.
There is much better information available today on fish stocks and over-fishing and we are able to keep abreast of the latest data and act accordingly.
We will not serve fish from endangered stocks and we ensure that the products used in the restaurants derive from a sustainable resource, either wild or farmed responsibly.
