Inverness chippy earns MSC certification



The Friary Fish and Chips in Inverness, Scotland, is the latest chippy to earn MSC certification.

 
The news means that The Friary can now use the MSC blue fish label on its cod and haddock, assuring customers that the fish sold has been responsibly caught using sustainable methods. It also means it can be traced back to the fishermen who caught it.
 
The Friary Fish and Chips serves the community of Beauly and attracts customers from across towns nearby to enjoy its award-winning food. Not only does it offer certified sustainable fish, it also uses packaging made of eco-friendly reused sugar cane and it sends used cooking oil away to be re-used as bio-diesel.
 
Dawn Gray, owner of The Friary, said: “We are delighted to have gained certification that proves to our valued customers that we are wholly committed to serving only fish products that are from sustainable sources. 

"The Friary try to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and serving sustainable fish means we are part of the ongoing process of ensuring that there will be fish supplies for generations in the future.”

Loren Hiller, commercial officer at the MSC, adds: “The Friary clearly go over and beyond to ensure their customers can eat fish that’s 100% traceable to a sustainable source. Now Friary’s customers can enjoy their seafood knowing it there will plenty more where it came from!”
