About Scotprime

Scotprime Seafoods is one of the UK’s leading privately-owned seafood companies. One of Britain’s major seafood exporters, we specialise in high quality seafood, sourced from the island and mainland ports of the UK.

Formed in 1988 the company is a previous winner of the prestigious Queens Export Achievement award. Scotprime is headquartered in Ayr Scotland and it’s main business is the packing, processing, freezing and distribution of fish and shellfish which are dispatched daily to all European countries.

The company’s main operations are throughout the coast – in Ayr, Aberdeen and Shetland. All cater for different markets, with Ayr specialising in fresh seafood for export markets, langoustine production, king and queen scallops. The Aberdeen operation is geared mainly towards whiting, haddock and monkfish, while the Shetland operation sources some of the finest quality fish and shellfish available.

Scotprime’s main export markets are currently France, Spain and Italy and we are becoming increasingly recognised as a player in the domestic market for fresh and frozen products such as our range of king and queen scallop products for the restaurant, hotel and foodservice trade.
Scotprime have continued to diversify their operations to stay in line with the continually changing circumstances and dynamics of the fishing industry. They have invested over the years in such diverse ventures in the catching sector from inshore prawn trawlers, autolining and creeling through to sea freezing. One of the co owned vessels is also fitted with the new EC compliant electronic log book linked to the factory information system. This innovative “SCOTRAK” system gives total traceability and catch information, from the catching point through to the sales system. In addition when fully developed the system will allow confidential data transmission from the catchers to the factory and vice versa.
