Loch Fyne Oysters Partner with Dobbies Garden Centres
Loch Fyne Oyster and Dobbies Garden Centres are partnering to bring customers fresh oysters, mussels and smoked salmon as they shop.The opening of the first Loch Fyne seafood counter at Dobbies store in Livingston was celebrated with a demonstration of oyster shucking by one of Loch Fyne’s skilled oystermen. Handy for Loch Fyne produce when you can’t get to Loch Fyne, or can’t wait for a delivery.
Loch Fyne seafood counters are planned for Dobbies stores across the UK with more opening in the coming months. Staff from each store will be trained at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar and delicatessen in Argyll, (See our visit here), will be on hand to advise customers about the seafood products on offer.
Loch Fyne Oysters Managing Director Cameron Brown said,
“We are delighted to be working with Dobbies to bring top quality seafood to their stores. Dobbies customers can now go home with smoked salmon or fresh oysters knowing that exactly the same products are being served to diners in the finest hotels in the world. Our responsible farming practices also complementDobbies’ environmentally friendly approach to gardening by sourcing all their plants from the UK.”
Archie Stewart, Head of Food at Dobbies Garden Centres, said:
“Bringing Loch Fyne seafood into our Livingston Foodhall builds on the high- quality produce offering that Dobbies’ customers know and love. We’re excited to be taking this first step and look forward to introducing Loch Fyne to more of our stores across the UK in the near future.”
