Marine Products Scotland: HR Services

"...their expertise would be beneficial to any business.”



Marine Products Scotland is one of the UK’s leading producers of luxury Scottish salmon. The company works with retailers salmon farmers and third party customers to process their fish, while also supplying products under their own brand The Sùlaire Fish Co

The company was recently listed in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100, hailed as one of the fastest growing companies in the UK, and in the London Stock Exchange’s list of 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2020.  

What We Did

The company has been a client of French Duncan for some time, and were introduced to the French Duncan HR team two years ago. People have always been at the heart of Marine’s ethos with 150 staff employed at the Glasgow site, but the company did not have a dedicated HR function. 

The Managing Director felt they didn’t need a full-time resource, but identified a need for the following HR support:

  • Strategic advice and guidance on handling HR matters
  • Developing and streamlining HR policies and procedures
  • Implementing contractual documentation.
  • Restructuring and amending job functions.

Impact We Had

Working both on and off-site for Marine Products, our HR support has allowed the company to meet a range of HR challenges during a significant period of change.  

Managing Director, Mary Bisset said:

I was never quite sold on the merits of HR until I started working with French Duncan HR. Lois McMurtrie converted my view around the value of the HR function – she has worked directly with me on a number of key HR projects which have fundamentally changed how we approach people management and which have positively impacted our business and critically our bottom line. 

Lois and the rest of the team at French Duncan HR have expert HR knowledge, and a particularly pragmatic approach. They are all very personable which makes building a strong relationship easy.  I would have no hesitation in recommending French Duncan HR, and think their expertise would be beneficial to any business.”
