SAIC’s innovation programme is delivered through three key workstreams: Driving Innovation, Sharing Innovation and Nurturing Innovation.

Marks and Spencer is delighted to sponsor this year’s Aquaculture Awards in the Shellfish Farmer of the Year category. Seafood is a very important sector for M&S and we use about 60,000t per annum of whole raw material. We offer 30 wild-caught and 9 farmed species, including Scottish farmed mussels and oysters. The latter have been a great hit with our customers since we launched them two years ago, and our value-added mussels have sold well for many years. Our Seafood Sourcing Policy for Wild-Caught, Farmed Fish & Shellfish covers every piece of M&S fish and shellfish on our shelves and responsible sourcing is central to this policy, as expected of us by our customers. Bivalve shellfish are nutritious and tick many boxes when it comes to responsibly sourced seafood. And so we would like to sell a lot more in this category and are always looking for new and innovative products to excite our customers.
