contributors in 2010. Now in its 4th year, The National Organic
Awards are recognised as an important feature of the organic food and drink

sources. In an already highly
competitive market, the company has established itself as a leading light in
the production and promotion of top quality Irish Organic Salmon. On receiving the award, company owner Mr.

ago we felt there was a niche market for organic Irish salmon that needed to be
filled. We are avid organic supporters and are looking at developing other
organic seafood products including mussels in the near future" This is an
exciting time for the west cork based firm, as they will be launching their new
retail brand "The Fisherman Murphy" for the Irish retail market next month
