Scallops Direct Alba Ltd

Scallops Direct Alba Ltd is a not for profit business reinvesting all surpluses into developing and expanding the business. As a social enterprise, its objectives are to assist long term unemployed back into work either through re-training or work experience and also people that may experience barriers to mainstream employment. The business has received the support of European Fisheries Funding, the Social Entrepreneur Fund (via Firstport) and local government support via the Dumfries and Galloway "Business Gateway" programme.

Set up in 2011, the company processes scallops caught by local fishermen, employing local people and reintroducing a traditional industry to the town of Annan in Dumfriesshire, Scotland. It also supports local hotel and restaurant businesses by supplying locally caught scallops fresh to their kitchens. They are able to supply businesses within a 100 mile radius of Annan and support the aspirations of many restaurants who wish to buy locally sourced produce and reduce food miles.
