The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation welcomes the announcement of the UK-Japan trade agreement.
The certainty it brings will help further develop the relationship between the Scottish salmon sector and Japanese consumers. This agreement confirms that Scottish salmon producers will continue to be able to supply the Japanese market without restrictive tariffs.
Japan is the fourth largest export market for Scottish salmon worth over £9 million annually. Supplying such a valuable market where consumers demand the highest quality for their seafood is important to us.
Maintaining low- or no-tariff access for our main products to key markets globally remains a priority for the Scottish salmon farming sector.
