Passion to Inspire Visit

Loch Duart 2018

October 2018

" A Passion to Inspire " is proud to announce a new partner Loch Duart Salmon to help  - educate and Inspire the next generation of young people that will take our industry forward into the future .

An initial trial invite was offered to the hosts of Passion 2018 Cambridge Regional College  - for  Head Lecturer Graham Taylor and students to attend our first ever College visit with Loch Duart at half term W/C 22nd October.

This is something very new for all of us and was a brilliant success - and through Patrick at Loch Duart - this will be a fantastic opportunity for other colleges to visit the North West of Scotland and experience something very special (from March next year on a first come basis and availability)

Patrick Evans -  “The culinary community, also the consumer demands provenance and sustainability from its food. Loch Duart welcomes and embraces that, encouraging more visitors than ever to visit our farms, meet our husbandry men and learn what it takes to produce our award-winning Salmon. 

To continue to inspire and educate the future generations, whilst visiting our farming operations in NW Sutherland, one of the most remote, stunningly attractive and sparsely populated areas of Europe, we aim to fully immerse our visitors in every aspect of our farming from egg to harvest. "

After Graham and his team arrived at Inverness airport on the 23rd October their  journey started.........

 

Students - Claire Wood  - “Seeing the journey of the Salmon from the hatchery all the way through to Harvest was amazing. The care the team at Loch Duart take towards making sure the Salomon are happy is quite incredible. Their ideas around innovation to do this were really thought provoking and challenged all of the negative press you hear about. Loch Duart are doing things really differently and this was great to see.”

Student - Tom Sykes “This trip was really once in a lifetime, from our arrival at Inverness, the team from Loch Duart could not have taken better care of us. They know their business inside and out and it's really clear that the values of Loch Duart are present in everything they do” 

Student  - Kaylisa  - “Building in a bit of team competition on the 1st day was really fun – it’s not often we get to step outside of the classroom and think about things differently but our time in Scotland allowed us to do exactly that. A great team bonding experience and lots of fun!”
