The Oban Times - - Births, Marriages & Deaths -

AROUND 60 res­i­dents en­joyed a free tast­ing event last week when they sam­pled a range of food made from lo­cally farmed trout pro­duced by Dawn­fresh Farm­ing.

The event took place on Wednesday April 26, with peo­ple sam­pling a range of hot and cold smoked trout prod­ucts pre­pared on site by Dawn­fresh at Taynuilt Vil­lage Hall.

All of the trout on show was farmed from one of Dawn­fresh’s nearby sites on Loch Etive. The com­pany has five sites at dif­fer­ent points in Loch Etive, from Port na Mine in the east to Ard­chat­tan House in the west.

Dawn­fresh is Scot­land’s largest trout farmer and sup­plies ma­jor UK re­tail­ers as well as ex­port­ing, pro­mot­ing the qual­ity of Loch Etive-farmed fish world­wide.

Its trout from Loch Etive was re­cently seen on the menu at the Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hills Hil­ton in Cal­i­for­nia.

The com­pany em­ploys more than 550 full-time staff, with up to 200 ad­di­tional tem­po­rary work­ers at key pe­ri­ods.

Alison Hutchins, farm­ing op­er­a­tions de­vel­op­ment man­ager for Dawn­fresh, said: ‘It was fan­tas­tic to see so many peo­ple come and sam­ple the fresh fish pro­duced right on their doorstep on Loch Etive.

‘ We have an ex­cit­ing range of prod­ucts and con­sider our­selves to be a real part of the lo­cal area.

‘We wanted the lo­cal com­mu­nity who live in and around Loch Etive to come and sam­ple the high- qual­ity food pro­duced in their area.

‘I hope peo­ple en­joyed this sec­ond tast­ing event and we will def­i­nitely look­ing to hold sim­i­lar events in the future.’
