Case Study: Dawnfresh
Dawnfresh is the UK’s largest producer of farmed trout, with most of their sites established in Argyll & Bute. Starting from a low base, Orbit has worked with Dawnfresh to build productive relationships with local councillors, community representatives, MPs and MSPs.
In addition, we have secured a position for Dawnfresh on the Scottish Government working group which is looking to how aquaculture might expand in the future, as well as arranged discussions with local council senior officials and Scottish Government ministers to emphasise the importance of the company to Scotland’s rural economy.
Furthermore, in the areas around Dawnfresh’s farms we have arranged a series of partnerships and sponsorships as well as publicising the work by the team to help other Loch users in order to embed the idea that Dawnfresh in an integral part of the local community.
