Leading, protective packaging manufacturer, Styropack has joined the newly-created Scottish Seafood Association (SSA). The SSA was formed in October 2011 and its main objective is to grow the fish processing sector in Scotland and to develop Scottish seafood as a brand that is known for its value and quality.
“We welcome the membership of well-known companies like Styropack.”
“Styropack has served the fishing industry in Scotland for nearly 50 years”, explains Mike Pocock, Group Sales Manager, Styropack UK. “Joining the SSA demonstrates our commitment to continue serving it for the next 50!
“The SSA is working on behalf of the whole seafood industry in Scotland and we are keen to be part of that endeavour. Seafood and fish processing are central to the Scottish economy and it is good to see an organisation being set up to support the seafood sector,” says Mike.
The SSA already has 60 members and aims to represent everyone in the Scottish seafood industry both locally, and in Europe. “We welcome the membership of well-known companies like Styropack,” says John.
‘It proves that we are on the right track and that we can represent the entire seafood industry in Scotland, including all the companies that service it. We want to ensure that Scottish seafood does not lose its competitive position in the world seafood market,’ says John Cox, CEO Scottish Seafood Association.
