Scottish langoustine is the main production of the Braehead (SFO Enterprises) Ltd processing unit in Fraserburgh, Scotland.

They are very successful with superior langoustine tail product offered to exclusive buyers throughout Europe.

Experienced Operations Manager Dale Bellamy at Brahead. says: "After a thorough scrutiny for required procedures to achieve what we wanted, it was time to go ahead. One of our existing plants was revamped. All old plate freezers were taken out and modern scampi processing line and iqf freezer were brought in. Now we produce the "best Scampi's in the world" and deliver to demanding customers all over Europe. Our customers always come back and they are prepared to pay premium price for our deliveries"

Brahead achieved this quality thanks to a well thought process and the OctoFrost freezer that locks in the natural moisture, gives a much higher meat yield on thawing and a better bite. It also enhances the product appearance trough a transparent crystal hard glaze.

This production process has established the brand as a market leader in quality, and won the approval of top Scottish chef Nick Nairn who was so impressed with both the frozen and defrosted quality that he was happy to lend his name and reputation to the product.

Ruben Larsson, MD of IQF Frost, comments: "From the very beginning Dale Bellamy understood the advantages of our new innovative technology. The OctoFrost is adaptable to many different types of seafood and non-seafood products, and always delivers the expected performance."
