....Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,

The hills of the Highlands for ever I love....


Robert Burns

  • The shores of the Scottish Highlands have long been famed for their crisp clear waters containing the very best of Salmon.

  • Here at Highland we understand and honour that legacy of quality, enhancing the best of raw materials to satisfy the most demanding of palate.

RSPCA Chain Of Custody





We do everything we can to operate in a manner so as to protect and minimise damage to the environment. This is achieved through recycling of waste products such as packaging; the use of packaging that is suitable for recycling after use and so far as reasonably practical the minimisation of the quantity of packaging used around products produced. 

We are commited to a policy of optimisation of utility usage (water and electricity) to minimise the waste of these resources. This is achieved through the purchase of energy efficient equipment, wherever practical the collection and re-use of water (i.e. the collection of sample water and overflow water for use in cleaning external yard areas. We use movement sensors to switch off lighting when areas are not in use.


We have undertaken a project to replace lighting within the factory with low energy LED lighting panels, replacing the previous fluorescent tube lighting that has drastically reduced the electrical demand. There has been an ongoing programme to install new efficient refrigeration systems in all new and refurbished temperature controlled areas.


Our fresh fish arrive in insulated polystyrene boxes. These are compacted on site and sent to third party manufacturers who recycle them into other products such as plant pots. 

Almost 100% of our waste cardboard is recycled.

Oh, and last but not least, we recycle all our empty cans, glass, plastic food containers and paper from the offices and recreational facilities.
